NIH Pain Consortium Symposium
On June 6th – 7th, the NIH Pain Consortium will convene the 18th Annual Pain Consortium Symposium on Advances in Pain Research: Resilience and Pathways to Recovery, which will highlight NIH-funded research in the pain field with a focus on understudied populations, physiological mechanisms of resilience and recovery, and advances in biopsychosocial interventions, therapeutics development, and other approaches for pain management and resolution. Resilience is a dynamic and multidimensional concept that includes the ability to resist, adapt, recover, or grow from a challenge. Relying on a whole-person biopsychosocial model of health, the capacity to adapt and recover from a painful injury, disease or condition is a function not only of an individual’s coping strategies, social support, and emotional and behavioral flexibility, but also of the ability for physiological systems to adapt or compensate to regain function and resolve pain. Please join us as we explore resilience and pathways to recovery.
