Event Timeline

Date: November 1, 2018
Time: 17:30 to 19:40
Place: Clinical Science Centre University Hospital Aintree Lower Lane Liverpool L9 7AL






The Pain Relief Foundation started the Annual Lecture as a Millennium project. Each year an eminent pain physician or scientist is invited to lecture on a topic currently of interest, in pain research or management. The lecture is given each year in honour of a person who contributed much to the field of pain treatment or research during his or her career. A short presentation about their life and work is given before the lecture by a fellow academic or clinician.


The inaugural lecture was given by Russell Portenoy in the year 2000.


Continuing with the theme of Annual Lectures in which we explore all aspects of chronic pain, the 2018 Lecture “Embodied Pain: psychological science and chronic pain” will be presented by Professor Chris Eccleston who is Professor of Medical Psychology at the University of Bath, UK, where he also directs the Centre for Pain Research. He established the highly respected Bath Pain Management Unit in 1995, developing intensive treatment programmes for both adults and adolescents with chronic pain. He is chair of the science committee for the European Pain Federation. This year he received the prestigious IASP Ronald Melzack Award.

The 2018 Annual Lecture will take place on Thursday 1st November and will commence at 6.00pm. Click here to see the full announcement
