SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The San Diego Pain Summit (SDPS) is pleased to announce that SDPS conference presentations and pre-conference SDPS workshops follow the standards set for pain education as designed by the International Association of the Study of Pain (IASP) Curriculum Outline on Pain for Physical Therapy.

The IASP is an international leader in pain research, management, and resources for the study of pain. The Curriculum Outline on Pain for Physical Therapy is written for entry-level physical therapists and physical therapy students but can also be applied to a wider range of health care practitioners. The curriculum outlines what a student/clinician should understand about what pain is and shows competency in helping create active strategies to help the individual patient manage their pain.

The SDPS is proud to continue to provide education to help clinicians learn how to use pain research in clinical practice. Setting the standards for SDPS education and pre-conference workshops using the curriculum set by a world-wide recognized leading pain research group, the IASP ensures the SDPS will continue to provide the best pain education for attendees.

About the San Diego Pain Summit

The San Diego Pain Summit is an annual, international, multidisciplinary conference created by Rajam Roose. Rajam founded the SDPS after she noticed that many clinical graduates were at a loss as to how to use pain research in clinical practice. She sought to fill this educational gap by bringing world renown researchers and clinicians to the SDPS stage. Rather than focusing on techniques, the SDPS focus is creating frameworks based on pain research. For more information, visit www.sandiegopainsummit.com
