It was my first NAPS and I loved it. I would come back every year if I could.

19-20 September 2024 at Warwick Conferences 

We warmly invite you to join us at the National Acute Pain Symposium on 19-20 September 2024, at Warwick Conferences. With a great educational programme, range of options for delegate registration, opportunities to engage with the trade and enjoy the now legendary NAPS Social evening and Awards, NAPS is an unmissable event for those who work in Acute Pain and Pain Management.

NAPS remains a Not for Profit Event and we have held our prices for several years, so although you may notice a small increase in pricing for 2024, this is to reflect the increased costs of the venue, and associated costs. NAPS remains a worthwhile investment in your medical education and we look forward to welcoming you to the event.
