Dear EFIC Cancer Pain Course Faculty,

It was immense pleasure to have your company in Liverpool and share your experience in this field which has been very well received and appreciated by the course delegates. I have had a quick look at the feedback and am delighted to say that it is excellent and reflects your valuable contribution and support without which it is not possible. 

This school was very well supported by Dr Chris Wells (EFIC President), Faculty from EFIC, Dr Marley from Aintree Palliative Medicine (Woodland’s Hospice), Walton Centre colleagues and faculty from UK.  

It is a rare and unique opportunity to share knowledge and experience in this field in such detail (lectures, case discussions, live case presentations on recently treated cases, pain in cancer survivors, group work etc).  

I am sure this will make positive impact on those who attended, to further help patients with cancer related pain in UK and Europe.  

Pain relief foundation (Julie and Brenda) and Walton centre has provided immense support and motivation towards this and it is really appreciated

 Again many thanks for your contribution in making this a great success!


Dr Manohar Sharma
