Persistent Post Surgical Pain: Challenges and Approaches

About this event
With around 10 million surgical procedures carried out in the NHS per year, and 2-10% of patients
continuing to experience severe pain beyond the immediate post-operative period, persistent postsurgical
pain is something that we all need to understand.
Join Prof Stephan Schug, Chair of Anaesthesiology, University of Western Australia, at this unique
study day that brings together experts across specialties and professions to discuss the
challenges of persistent post surgical pain (PPSP) and to share their experiences.
This event will be held immediately prior to the BPS Annual Scientific Meeting (3rd-5th May 2017)
and significant discounts are available to BPS members attending both events.
