After participation in this educational meeting, participants should have an understanding of:

  1. Basic neuroanatomy related with the performance of pain therapies.
  2. Clinical evidence regarding new and evolving treatments for the treatment of pain.
  3. Current imaging and electrophysiological technologies relevant for performing diagnosis and performing the invasive tecniques for pain treatment.
  4. Common clinical problems in chronic pain and current recommendations for the evaluation and management of these pain conditions.
  5. Evidence-Based treatments in pain medicine.
  6. Identify questions that need to be addressed to increase knowledge of neuromodulation techniques use in pain treatment.
  7. How to design the Pain studies for obtaining better the evidence.
