2023 IASP-Southeast Asian Pain Management Camp

April 30 - May 3, 2023


The IASP Southeast Asian Pain Management Camp is an inter-professional residential education program in Pain management funded by the IASP and run by the Association of Southeast Asian Pain Societies (ASEAPS). The aim of the Pain Camp is to improve the knowledge and practice of pain management and is targeted at young healthcare professionals in southeast Asia. Since 2011, 5 Pain camps have been run just prior to the biennial ASEAPS Congress in Bangkok, Singapore, the Philippines, Myanmar, and Malaysia. The program has had a positive impact on pain education and practice to a total of 145 healthcare professionals from ASEAN countries and other LMICs in Asia including Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Mongolia.

In 2023, The Thai Association for the Study of Pain (TASP) is organizing the 6th IASP-Southeast Asian Pain Management Camp followed by the 9th Association of Southeast Asian Pain Societies (ASEAPS) Congress.

The Global Alliance of Partners for Pain Advocacy (GAPPA) invites those living with pain and the family and friends of those living with pain to participate in the My Letter to Pain campaign. This campaign, supported by Novartis, aims to highlight and increase understanding of the different experiences of pain, told from the lived experience of pain perspective, through an online survey and story submission. Those living with pain often report a disconnect while explaining their experience to physicians; this campaign will assist physicians in utilizing their patients’ words to understand their pain, how it impacts their lives, and how they respond to treatment. GAPPA hopes the campaign and stories will:

• Create educational information to help those living with pain.

• Provide individuals the opportunity to tell their stories and express their feelings freely and openly.

• Lead to greater communication between individuals and groups across the pain community.

• Identify directions for future programming and communication efforts.

Each submission remains anonymous unless the submitter chooses to share their details or present.

This campaign aims to bridge the gap between the lived experience of pain and pain research by inviting those with the lived experience to answer a two-part questionnaire.
