BPS Study Days

The Learning in Pain Series (LIPS) is the educational programme of the British Pain Society. It will provide comprehensive learning in pain medicine as per the International Association for the Study of Pain curriculum and is organised as a series of study days to run for three years.

There will be four LIPS study days in each academic year. The LIPS Study Days are appropriate for single day attendance but it is intended that the days complement each other.

Details of previous Study Days can be found at the bottom of this page.

A Study Day Bursary is available to members of the Society who require financial assistance to attend these Study Days. For details of eligibility, application and deadlines please go to to the grants and awards page in the 'For members' section, or click here.

Please see below for details of the forthcoming Study Days:

The Study days for 2015 are:

  • 13th February Cancer Pain
  • 12th June - Topic TBC

Programmes and booking forms will be avaliable shortly, please check back here.
