A multidisciplinary approach
Pain medicine is a discipline that has to interface with many other medical disciplines, including psychological and psychiatric medicine, orthopaedic and spinal surgery, rheumatology and rehabilitation. This conference seeks to provide both doctors from all specialties and lawyers with a more holistic view of the patient litigant and defendant in order to achieve a more just and commensurate settlement.
Established in 2011 by Dr Rajesh Munglani, Cambridge-based Consultant in Pain Medicine, the conference is a well-recognised and very popular fixture in both medical and legal diaries. Now run with co-organisers: Mr Stuart McKechnie, Barrister, 9 Gough Square our Chair in 2016, Mr Julian Benson, Barrister, Guildhall Chambers, Dr Michael Spencer, Consultant Psychiatrist and Mr Peter Baird, Retired Surgeon.
The feedback we receive is extremely positive. In particular delegates appreciate:
• Generous time to put questions to speakers who are experts in their field.
• A neutral, sociable space in which to exchange views.
• The high level of expertise amongst the delegates; speakers often come from the previous year's audience.
