Ecole Européenne de la Douleur

EFIC Pain School

Neuropathic pain is triggered by lesions or disease of the somatosensory system, and in particular of the ascending pain and temperature pathways and their cortical targets. Recent advances in the basic and clinical knowledge of neuropathic pain have led to a re-evaluation of how to impart information on this topic (EFIC Core Curriculum for the European Diploma in Pain Medicine – 3.2.). The EFIC European Federation of Pain School on Neuropathic Pain will help health professionals involved in the management of neuropathic pain to refine their diagnosis and assessment skills, improve their ability to interpret clinical, instrumental and laboratory findings, and establish the most appropriate treatment.

25 pupils from 20 countries will follow intensive courses during 4 days.
