Abstract

The 'Science of Relief' event, held in Milan on 10-11 May 2019, was aimed at promoting dialog between different stakeholders among scientific associations, pharma industry, healthcare services and related institutions. The goal was to renew interest and attention on the management of pain, sharing new solutions in order to bring the patients and their quality of life to the center of attention. An international group of scientists and clinicians presented and discussed new and known evidence in the field of chronic pain, from physiopathology and diagnosis to the choice of appropriate and timely pharmacological treatments. This paper reports the highlights of those presentations.
