The EFIC Montescano School was launched in October of the same year during the European Week Against Pain. Many specialists from different countries and a variety of branches of medicine are increasingly involved in Pain Medicine. This is certainly a boost to cultural richness. However, this creates a point of weakness in the lack of uniformity of clinical approaches to the patient and in the different uses of the various available diagnostic tools.
The Montescano School will help pain clinicians to refine their clinical neurological approach and to improve their ability to interpret instrumental and laboratory findings. For the many who do not work in a multidisciplinary team or who rely on external support, the School will also provide the skills for a better understanding of the various diagnostic tests.
