Interventional Pain Medicine SIG Study day “Current updates for your practice”
The Interventional pain SiG has put together an attractive programme of clinical/ research updates, controversies and tips and tricks sessions. 

We have taken feedback from you and included a range of evidence based and contentious topics. There is a truly great line up of international speakers from multiple disciplines. BPS and IPM SiG have invested significant effort and resources to invite speakers from Canada, Europe and UK. We anticipate that a maximum number of Pain colleagues will take advantage of attractive delegate rates. There are sessions on Spinal pain from Spinal surgeons, Research updates on Facet joint and radicular pain, clinical updates on peripheral joint and nerve interventions and Ultrasound demonstrations. We anticipate a great educational feast of cross discipline learning and networking.
