Word of welcome

It is a real pleasure to invite you to a very special meeting: The 1st World Congress on Abdominal and Pelvic Pain. This meeting will be a unique opportunity to talk with colleagues who are providing care to patients with abdominal and pelvic pain. Come and feel the recognition when listening to lectures of experts who will share with you the latest information on all the different aspects of abdominal and pelvic pain.

This meeting is organized by PUGO, IPPS and ConPP, all well known associations in the world of pelvic pain. The strength of these separate organizations is now bundled in this first world meeting.

In the process of preparing this meeting we more and more realized that, because pelvic pain is in its nature a type of visceral pain, we wanted to incorporate abdominal pain into the scientific programme and into the theme of the meeting. And so we did.

The International Association for the Study of Pain launched the Global Year Against Visceral Pain in October 2012. Our meeting is held within the period of this important global year campaign. We really hope that our meeting may function as a vehicle to spread the scientific news about visceral pain to many caregivers in the world.

Aside from sharing high quality information, we hope and trust, that this initiative will contribute to raising further awareness and increase knowledge about these visceral pain conditions. And we hope that abdominal and pelvic pain will meet in May 2013 at the venue in Amsterdam. Let this meeting be the beginning of a new era in the world of visceral pain.

The programme contains a lot of interesting information for everyone treating patients with abdominal and pelvic pain. We especially invite physiotherapists and psychologists to visit our congress.

Please put the dates in your planner and be sure to be in Amsterdam, the capital city of Holland.

See you there,

Bert Messelink, congress chair.
Chairman of the IASP Special Interest Group on Pain of UroGenital Origin
