The Irish Pain Society, Chapter of the International Association for the Study of Pain, is a non-profit organization comprised of multidisciplinary health care professionals and scientists, dedicated to research, and educational and clinical aspects of pain management.

The society endeavours to promote all aspects of education and training in research and development, and clinical management of chronic pain problems.

The Irish Pain Society believes that every individual suffering from a chronic pain condition has the right to access appropriate information for the better understanding of his/her condition.

The society believes all patients should have access to the highest possible standard of care, from appropriately trained clinicians, in facilities adequately equipped to meet their needs.

The society endeavours to promote public awareness of persistent pain as a chronic illness, which seriously impacts quality of life for patients and their families.

The society believes that greater recognition and understanding is required at government level so that greater resources are made available to meet the needs of patients suffering from this condition.

The Irish Pain Society is not in a position to provide clinical advice or pain specialist referrals to individual patients, their relatives or friends. Individuals seeking such services are advised to proceed via their General Practitioner.
