Welcome message

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As you probably remember, the COVID pandemic was a partial obstacle to the success of the Roma Pain Days congress 2021. In fact, it was possible to have just 100 people in presence, but over 1.200 Colleagues were present on-line, especially from areas like the Middle-East and Balkans. This is the reason why the Paolo Procacci Foundation has decided to organize a new edition of the same educational event.

This year the Roma Pain Days is going to take place on September 2-3. The enthusiasm we are seeing, and the fact that there are already abstract submitted and over 500 Colleagues registered represent a good premise for a successful new edition. The quantity and quality of the endorsements to the scientific program is incredible. Both the European Federation of Pain (EFIC), and the Latino-American Federation of Pain Societies (FEDELAT), together with several other scientific societies have already endorsed the RPD2022. There are still limiting rules for the in-presence participants, but we strongly believe that in September the situation will be different. In any case, please feel free to register at least for the on-line edition. You will enjoy a spectacular scientific program, also with the reward of CME credits. Besides the sponsored symposia (5 at the moment), the program includes an interesting session on low-back pain, organized in association with FEDELAT. This session will also have a simultaneous translation, for the benefit of all the colleagues enjoying the congress from Latino-America. We expect several hundred participants from that continent. Moreover, a large part is dedicated to interventional pain management, and the use of ultrasonography in pain medicine. This aspect is increasingly important, and the scientific program committee has also included a workshop on the same topic. The risk of complications due to opioids and multidrugs use will be presented in a modern and appealing way. We are sure you will like it.

So, we look forward to having you with us and with the many speakers participating from several different countries, diffusing their knowledge in scientific sessions, and practical workshops. Roma will be the best frame in which to place all this. And September is a perfect month to enjoy the beauties of the Eternal City.
