Tēnā koutou katoa

We are pleased to welcome you the 13th International Symposium on Pediatric Pain, to be held as a virtual event from Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th March, 2022.

The welcome to join us for ISPP 2022 remains an awhi mahana nui (big warm hug). The invited speakers are confirmed and ready to engage, inform and wow us all.

It is with pōuri (sadness), that due to the worldwide disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we must announce that the Symposium from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th March 2022 will now be a fully virtual event. This means that both delegate attendance and speaker presentations will be delivered on our virtual platform. 

The Education Day on Thursday 24th March will remain a hybrid meeting at The Cordis Hotel, Auckland. Attendance on this day can be virtual or in-person (for people living in New Zealand). Education Day presentations may be virtual - via live-stream or pre-recorded - or in-person. Our Education Day will be held alongside the New Zealand Pain Society Conference at The Cordis Hotel.
