The IASP 2022 World Congress on Pain took place from 19-23 September 2022, in Toronto, Canada. As a part of the World Congress Virtual Program, IASP will host eleven Post-Congress webinars. These webinars will provide registrants with practical reviews of current research and therapies surrounding pain and will feature live Q&A sessions with international experts in pain management and pain research. The Virtual Program is available to all IASP 2022 World Congress on Pain registered attendees (i.e., both in-person and virtual registrants).
There are three pricing tiers for this Post-Congress webinar:
1) FREE to all IASP 2022 World Congress on Pain registered attendees (registrants must enter the promo code provided via email during checkout).
2) $5.00 USD for all IASP members that did not register to attend the IASP 2022 World Congress on Pain.
3) $25.00 USD for all IASP non-members that did not register to attend the IASP 2022 World Congress on Pain.
Translation from Evidence to Real-Life Settings: Updates on Pain in Older Adults, in Parkinson’s Disease, and After Stroke – A Case-Based Workshop
As age progresses, chronic pain is increasingly prevalent and negatively impacts physical and cognitive function. Furthermore, acquired conditions such as stroke and Parkinson's disease also become more prevalent with aging and pose a supplementary burden to the patient’s quality of life. In this fourth Post-Congress webinar, the speakers will present clinical case vignettes that will serve as the basis for interaction with the audience through an examination of the facts and challenges that healthcare providers face when treating chronic pain in older adults.
The best available evidence to overcome diagnostic, classification, and treatment issues will be presented and discussed with the audience. Key aspects of chronic pain in healthy older adults will be presented and also in two common conditions: Parkinson's and cerebrovascular diseases. Emphasis will be given to classification and management strategies supported by evidence and how they may affect the every-day practice of attendees.
Registrants from diverse backgrounds are welcome as cases and discussions will be conducted in a jargon-free and clear manner. Those interested in basic and preclinical science will have a unique opportunity to engage in a clinical-based discussion and are welcome to contribute with translational insights from the lab to the clinical setting.
There will be a live Q+A session following each presentation.

Learning Objectives (Upon Completion):
- Understand the main characteristics of pain in healthy older individuals and acknowledge how chronic pain can be a supplementary burden for relatively healthy older adults.
- Obtain a global view on the differences between central post-stroke pain and other non-neuropathic pain syndromes, their main imaging and neurophysiological correlates, and the paths towards patient management.
- Gain a critical view on the prevalence and impact of pain in Parkinson's disease, its different sub- types, and main management strategies.
