In June 2019, more than 550 people participated in the Italian Chapter Congress, in Rome.

Specialists from different disciplines gathered in a multidisciplinary confrontation, to underline how pain medicine represents a specialty that must bring together a wealth of knowledge, ranging from Internal Medicine to Anesthesiology, from Rheumatology to Neurology, from Physiology to Orthopedics and others health professionals, nurses, physiotherapists, experts in wound care, radiologists, engineers, and scientific communication professionals.
