About the National Acute Pain Symposium

 

​​​​The National Acute Pain Symposium (NAPS) is the largest acute pain meeting in the UK. Having completed the 29th year in 2019, making it the longest running acute pain meeting in the world, #NAPS30 in 2020 will celebrate it's 30th Anniversary.

 

Acute Pain is most commonly seen after surgery or trauma, but it is an experience that everyone has encountered. All doctors and nurses, not just those with specific pain training, will look after patients with pain. It is by learning from experts, keeping up to date with current research, working together and sharing good practice that we can improve the care of our patients. 

 

NAPS is a truly multidisciplinary meeting whose delegates include doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and psychologists, and we welcome clinicians and trainees from any speciality who have an interest in pain. It is a relaxed and friendly meeting intended to encourage and develop acute pain expertise.

 

We attract nationally acclaimed speakers and in recent years have been treated to top quality lectures on a broad range of pain topics from intensive care to veterinary medicine, rheumatology, acute medicine, gastroenterology, obstetrics and orthopaedics, as well as developing themes in basic science research.
