This evening meeting will provide a synopsis of its clinical utility and information regarding practical applications in different patient cohorts, in relation to both anaesthesia and critical care. An expert panel will discuss potential advantages and disadvantages and where pain fits in this continuum of use will be addressed. To contribute to this discussion book your place today.
A broad demographic of anaesthetists, intensive care clinicians, specialist veterinary surgeons and those with an interest in pain medicine.
