In recent years many clinical trials addressing chronic pain failed to meet the trial endpoint despite encouraging data from preclinical research. One reason for this is that clinical trials have deficits in defining the correct inclusion/exclusion criteria, the correct endpoints, and measures for clinically meaningful improvement. Furthermore, the concept that a specific treatment is only beneficial for a subgroup of patients and not for the entire group comes more and more into the focus of clinical trial design.
This Congress will bring together researchers, clinicians, industry professionals, and other related experts to look at ways of improving the situation by developing better ideas and practices in clinical trials on pain and address medical devices and other interventions in the treatment and management of chronic pain.
Find out more about the program and the speakers here.
The event is endorsed by the European Pain Federation EFIC.
