The SPPM meeting will focus on topics of interest to those involved in the prevention, assessment, and management of pain in infants, children, and adolescents. The overall goals for attendees of the program are to enhance their existing fund of knowledge, and to introduce them to new and state of the art techniques and information that affect their practice and improve the care for children in pain.

The program brings together experts from clinical and basic science disciplines related to pediatric medicine, anesthesiology, pain medicine, palliative care, bioethics and neurobiology. General topic areas include neurobiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, regional anesthesia, anesthesia, surgery, patient safety, database resources, and risk assessment for abuse and addiction prevention.

The presentation format is varied, and includes lectures, reviews, panel discussions, problem-based learning discussions, and workshops. Sessions provide a wealth of information and advances in the field of pain medicine. Significant attendee involvement and feedback are encouraged in all aspects of the program. Program content is, in fact, the direct result of membership input and extensive audience polling at prior meetings.

This program is intended for physicians including anesthesiologists, neurologists, surgeons and neonatologists as well as physicians in training but also other practitioners such as psychologists, physical therapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists, and social workers who care for children in pain in their practice in the operating room, critical care unit, procedural areas, pain clinics or are affiliated with multi-disciplinary treatment centers. It is also intended for clinical and basic science researchers who are interested in clinical aspects of pain medicine and whose areas of investigation relate to pediatric pain medicine.
