Greeting

Dear friends and colleagues

As we all know, not only Korea but the whole world has been affected by COVID-19 and almost everyone’s lives have changed since then. First of all, my heart goes out to the people around the world who sacrificed themselves to COVID-19. I also pay tribute to medical staff around the world fighting COVID-19.

Due to the recent spread of the pandemic, our Korean Pain Society is planning to host the international conference in November this year in a hybrid way that combines online and offline. The 72nd academic conference and training session of the Korean Pain Society will be held in Seoul, Korea from November 20 to 21 in 2021. It is a shame that foreigners meet online.

This year’s KPS international academic conference will cover state-of-the-art research, treatment techniques, and painkillers education in basic and clinical science. Speakers have been already confirmed and additionally being cast in countries such as the United States, Britain, Australia, Germany, Taiwan, Japan, and China. More information will be provided for the best possible progress over the next few months.

Please meet a variety of recent topics related to pain treatment.
