2017 is the IASP’s Global Year Against Pain After Surgery


The 2017 IASP Global Year Against Pain After Surgery has several purposes:

  • Disseminate information worldwide about pain after surgery
  • Educate pain researchers as well as health-care professionals who see the issues associated with such pain first-hand in their interactions with patients
  • Increase awareness of postsurgical pain among public officials, members of the media, and the general public
  • Encourage government leaders, health-care organizations, and others to support policies that result in improved management of pain after surgery
