Chronic Pain: Negotiating the evidence maze
What better way of being taken on a journey through the evidence surrounding complex and persistent pain than with a drink in hand in the beautiful setting of the King's Arms in Waterloo?
We are delighted to announce that Dr Neil O'Connell has agreed to join us (drink in hand) and demonstrate how we can become better users of evidence, navigate the tyranny of small effects and notice when things might be too good to be true.
Neil is a wonderfully charasmatic speaker, great thinker and part of a small group of individuals moving therapy forward with a true consideration of the person in pain. We can't wait to host him at Le Pub Scientifique!
