Due to the developments of the COVID-19 situation and as a precautionary measure, the PAS ASM 2020 will be postponed to 2021 as the safety of all our attendees, partners and speakers are of the utmost importance.
The venue remains unchanged at the One Farrer Hotel, Singapore. We will update you of the new scheduled date and hope that you would be able to join us then.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the Pain Association of Singapore (PAS) Annual Scientific Meeting 2020. The one-day conference will be held at One Farrer Hotel & Spa on Saturday, 27 June 2020.
The 2020 edition of our ASM will place emphasis on the role of multidisciplinary teams in the management of musculoskeletal conditions leading to chronic pain. There will be a mix of plenary lectures, group and poster sessions, along with discussion with local and international faculty.
In addition, Singapore’s upcoming National Guidelines for the Safe Prescribing of Opioids are on the anvil; hence, we have also included a session on this weighty topic by a senior clinician directly involved in drafting these very guidelines.
As with our 2018 ASM, the upcoming programme consists of two tracks: one focusing on physician-centred topics, and another catering to allied health/nursing clinicians. In this way, we hope to have something for everyone, be it a refresher in the management of specific chronic pain conditions, recent evidence for best available management, or novel treatment modalities.
On behalf of the committee, we would like to extend a warm invitation to all our colleagues to join us at this conference.
Dr Terence Quek and Dr Singh Prit
