Global Year Against Visceral Pain

Categories: Community Engagement.

The campaign seeks to focus global attention on pain that originates in or near the internal organs of the body.

Visceral pain is second only to trauma as the reason that patients in the United States visit emergency rooms. The global year is a campaign focused on education about a specific area of pain aimed at heathcare professionals, government leaders and the public.

Fact sheets about many aspects of visceral pain, including chronic chest pain, chronic pelvic pain, functional abdominal pain, bladder pain and bowel pain are available on the IASP website.
