Annual Scientific Meeting

The British Pain Society hosts an Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) which is held at different locations throughout the UK. The aim of the ASM is to encourage healthcare professionals, from all disciplines involved in the understanding and management of pain, to exchange ideas and increase understanding in all aspects of pain and pain management.

There are a number of partnership opportunities at the ASM, including booking stands at the technical exhibition, running workshop sessions, placing an advert in the final programme, or having an insert in the participant welcome packs.

Codes of conduct

The British Pain Society values its relationship with partners in commercial organisations. This relationship is necessary to support the Society’s educational activities. Commercial organisations also benefit from their association with the British Pain Society in a number of ways and they are keen to demonstrate their links with the BPS to healthcare professionals, policy makers and members of the public. The BPS has worked successfully with commercial organisations on a number of projects and these have been discussed in detail with Council who have agreed what the Society’s role should be. Such discussions ensure that the BPS is not seen to endorse particular pharmaceutical or other products. Individual Officers and Council members may be approached by commercial organisations to become involved in educational activities. There is no doubt that the link between these individuals and the Society is susceptible to exploitation by organisations seeking Society endorsement. We have issued the following guidance to Officers of the Society and Council members.

Officers, elected council members and coopted members of the Council of the British Pain Society must not purport to represent the views of the British Pain Society when:

  • Speaking at pharmaceutically sponsored meetings on a topic that relates to specific products or devices.
  • Making editorial comment and influencing content in pharmaceutically sponsored journals
  • Making comments in the national press regarding products and commercial services
  • Endorsing pharmaceutical publications
