8th International Conference on Pain and Chemical Dependency
Date:6/9/2008

October 29th - November 1st, 2008 Philadelphia, PA

MORRISVILLE, Pa., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The 8th International Conference on Pain and Chemical Dependency (ICPCD) has released its final agenda and faculty listing and is now accepting registrations for the October 29th meeting, to be held at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. ICPCD is the annual meeting of the International Association for Pain and Chemical Dependency.

ICPCD is the only international, multidisciplinary conference addressing the challenging area of pain and chemical dependency. Last year ICPCD grew 30% from the previous meeting, in part as a result of an increasing commitment on the part of practitioners to insure patients have access to all appropriate pain medications and in part as a result of tremendous advances being made in the field of neuroscience. Conference management anticipates that the Philadelphia meeting will attract more than 600 clinicians, scientists, and regulators from around the world.

Plenary sessions, concurrent special interest tracks, preconference workshops, satellite symposia, poster sessions, and exhibits combine to provide attendees with an engaging and relevant educational experience. As in past years, the ICPCD has enlisted faculty who are the world's leading experts. Content will be based on the most current science, research, evidence, and best practices to support the professional challenges providers face and will address:

-- Global Public Health Issues

-- Clinical Challenges

-- Advances in Neurobiology and Neuroscience

-- Managing Risk Associated with Opioid Pain Treatments

-- Emerging Therapies

The International Association for Pain and Chemical Dependency (IAPCD) is an international organization dedicated to promoting appropriate and effective treatment for all patients with pain, including individuals with substance abuse, mental health or other co-occurring problems that may make treatment more challenging. The association encourages cooperation among professionals in the fields of health care, policy and regulation, law enforcement, law, politics and media to improve communication and education for the appropriate use of the controlled substances in pain treatment.
