The International Association for the Study of Pain
The International Symposium on Pediatric Pain 2023 (ISPP 2023) theme is Better Together, Innovation Through Partnerships. Under the direction of the Scientific Program Committee, led by Jennifer Rabbitts and Julia Wager, there will be rigorous science, real-life stories, and knowledge sharing to build capacity in the pediatric pain community.
