NEW!

Get a real-life view of the ICD-11 chronic pain classification and help with our study!

An IASP Task Force created a classification of chronic pain for ICD-11. To help you use the new classification, we have developed a decision algorithm guiding through the criteria. Now we would like to invite you to be the first pain specialists to test the algorithm. Take part in our innovative study design: Using our online platform you will be able to interact with virtual patients and tell us which ICD-11 diagnoses they have. This allows you to see the new ICD-11 diagnoses at work while testing the algorithm. For each participant, we will donate a tree! Interested? Click here to learn more and get started.
