The European Federation of IASP Chapters (EFIC) is a multidisciplinary professional organisation in the field of pain science and medicine, made up of the 29 European chapters of IASP (International Association for the Study of Pain).

The British Pain Society is its British Chapter.

Established in 1993, EFIC's 31 constituent chapters represent close to 20,000 scientists, physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists and other healthcare professionals across Europe who study pain and treat patients in pain. EFIC's aims are to advance research, education, clinical management and professional practice related to pain, and to serve as an authoritative, scientifically based resource concerning policy issues related to pain and its management.
