The ‘Pain Collaborative Network’ promotes and facilitates the discussion and exchange of ideas on chronic pain in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which has been identified as an area of unmet need by researchers, clinicians and most importantly patients. Our aim is to bring together chronic pain researchers, healthcare professionals and people living with chronic pain from different disease areas to share learning and establish new research partnerships to answer key questions in the field.
We send our network members regular newsletter updates on upcoming pain research funding opportunities, networking events and results from innovative research in the field of chronic pain.
