Event Timeline

Date: February 7, 2020
Time: 08:30 to 16:30
Place: Clinical Science Centre University Hospital Aintree Lower Lane Liverpool L9 7AL







Further to publication of framework for pain services for cancer and life-limiting disease by the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) of the Royal College of Anaesthetists; this study day aims to promote education on technical aspects of advanced neuroablative pain relief interventions for cancer related pain for tier 3 and 4 services. Guidance from FPM supported by Association for palliative Medicine, Association of Cancer Physicians and Clinical Oncology is freely available at

This study day expects that attendees have basic understanding of when a cancer pain relief intervention is indicated. This day will build on attendees’ existing knowledge of pain relief interventions to take it to higher level and to develop interdisciplinary cancer pain management services in their region to fulfil unmet need as highlighted by recent publication by FPM.  In our view Professional’s learning by collaborative working in this complex and challenging field is paramount to improve confidence in setting up and developing interdisciplinary working. This study day will also cover some of the rarely performed, but, most effective neuroablative neurosurgical pain relief techniques for cancer related pain and chronic pain.
