Have your say! What Refresher Course would you want at the World Congress on Pain?

I am on the Scientific Programme Committee for the next World Congress on Pain, to be held in Buenos Aires in October 2014. I am also on the subcommittee that is organising the range of refresher courses. Refresher courses are 3 hour sessions aimed at bringing attendants up to speed in a certain area. Here is your chance to influence how the World Congress looks. I would greatly appreciate it if you could list your ideas as comments to this post. Please be short and sharp.

You also have the opportunity to list the people you would like to deliver the refresher, if you have someone in particular in mind. You don’t have to do this, but you can.

This is your opportunity to make your voice heard in the planning of the biggest and most important pain meeting on the planet. Don’t let that opportunity slide.

Here is a list of the refresher courses held at the last world congress, in Milan, 2012:


And here is the list from Montreal 2010:
