The European Pain Federation EFIC has always been dedicated to bio-psycho-social concepts of pain and inter-disciplinarity. Encouraging all attendees of #EFIC2019 to understand different approaches to pain management is one of the main priorities of EFIC. Pain in Europe XI is the largest scientific congress on pain in 2019, bringing together the most recognized experts in the field of pain medicine to exchange knowledge, ideas and the latest advances in the field. Here is how #EFIC2019 will be “Bringing the Future to the Present”:
