Faculty of Pain Medicine, Annual Meeting
Delivering Knock-Out Events for Ireland's Top Anaesthetists
In 2009, M+C Events helped launch this inaugural annual symposium in partnership with the Faculty of Pain Medicine at the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland. 'Pain in the 21st Century' was a hugely successful event, attended by more than 250 delegates and attracting widespread industry support.
It was subsequently decided to expand the meeting symposium in its second year. The 'Pain in Women' event featured internationally renowned speakers including Prof. James Eisenach, Editor-in-Chief of the celebrated Anesthesiology clinical journal. The event coincided with the National Maternity Hospital’s Annual Charter Day celebrations and was held over two days. More than 250 people attended the event, which generated major media coverage including a report on RTÉ Six One News, interviews on Radio 1 and extensive editorial and pictorial coverage in the specialist medical media.
In 2011, the conference focused on cancer pain and received widespread support from clinicians and industry alike. The 'Managing Cancer Pain' conference provided a unique opportunity for the Faculty of Pain Medicine to bestow honorary fellowships to the internationally recognised specialists who spoke at the event, including Professor Emeritus Tess Cramond from Australia. The ceremony was followed by a Gala Dinner at the headquarters of the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland in Merrion Square.
The 4th annual conference 'Science in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Spinal Pain' took place from the 16th to the 18th February 2012. The meeting focused on spinal pain and the future of pain management and was attended by over 360 specialists in Pain Management, Anaesthesia, Orthopaedics and General Practice. The programme featured a host of national and international experts including Professor Robert Levy, Dr Elliott Krames and Dr Kenneth Alo who have spent a lifetime dedicated to the science of neuromodulation. They also received honorary fellowships of the Faculty of Pain Medicine at a ceremony in the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland.
The 5th annual conference 'Chronic Pain - A Disease in it's Own Right and a Major Healthcare Problem' took place from the 21st to the 23rd February 2013. The conference focused on the ongoing campaign to have chronic pain recognised as a disease in it's own right. The conference was addressed by Professor Hans Kress, President of EFIC and Professor Michael Cousins, Sydney, Australia. The conference received substantial coverage in national and local media including the RTE Morning Edition programme.
M+C Events provided support to the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland in terms of a major ‘Pain in Women’ conference that was organised under the auspices of its Faculty of Pain. My colleagues and I were thoroughly impressed by the levels of understanding displayed by the company. M+C Events are impressively experienced in terms of organising medical gatherings, they understand the clinician audience that we were interested in attracting and they came up with unique solutions in terms of marketing the event to them. The organisation on the day was seamless and the attendances extremely strong. I would have no hesitation recommending M+C Event's services to colleagues or anyone operating in the healthcare setting.
