This Scientific Panel on Pain is dedicated to promote knowledge on the pathophysiology and treatment of neuropathic pain. Specific aims are to give young neurologists adequate training in the field of pain, which is a subject often neglected in general neurological training. In recent years, European guidelines on the assessment and management of neuropathic pain have been developed by task forces derived from the panel, which are now included in the European Handbook of Neurological Management.
One of the aims is to establish a European network of laboratories and clinics for training in the specialty of neurological pain management, where neurologists in training will get first hand teaching and education in specific diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. If you are interested in the field of neuropathic pain and would like to contribute to the work of the Scientific Panel please contact the chairpersons.
