Dear members of multidisciplinary pain teams,
On behalf of the organising committee we would like to welcome you to the 4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress, which will be held at the new 040 Congress & Events Centre at the Van der Valk Hotel in Eindhoven, The Netherlands on 1-4 October 2014.
Following the success of our third congress in Middelburg, we have decided to expand the concept and present a four day multidisciplinary meeting on pain management, including internationally renowned speakers and state-of-the art lectures, in a vibrant location and an energising atmosphere. Faculty will be running special full day and half day programmes/workshops on such topics as low back pain, pain management in the developing world, paediatric pain management,cancer pain and palliative care, electrical stimulation, intrathecal drug delivery, radiology,complex regional pain syndrome and the role of trials in pain medicine.
A two day ultrasound for pain medicine course will be organised for the second time in The Netherlands by Dr Philip Peng from Toronto. There will also be a two day advanced course onultrasound for regional anaesthesia with expert teachers from Europe and further afield.
We are delighted that a conference for pain nurses is on the agenda for the congress. Furthermore special attention is being given towards pain management in the developing world and to a symposium from the International Federation of Health and Human Rights Organisations (IFHHRO) as well as the first ever symposium on the role of frequency in neuromodulation.
There will be an opportunity to present free oral papers and posters at the congress with the three best presentations being awarded a financial gift.
The 4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress will address those items that you require for managing the pain of your patients more effectively. We hope to see you at the meeting in October 2014.
With best regards,
David van den Tol,
Kenneth van Tilburg.

Oral presentations are normally 15 minutes with 5 minutes for discussion; laptops and projectors are the standard audiovisual equipment in each oral session. All presenters must upload their Keynote - or Powerpoint presentations online to have them pre-loaded on the session computers. Individual presentations then begin with the click of a mouse.

All poster presenters will present for a two hour period each day. The committee will accept a total of 50 oral presentations. Paper abstracts previously presented or published may not be submitted without modification. Original work must be changed or expanded, resulting in a new abstract.
