SPIN is a multi-professional group of pain management clinicians founded in 2000. Its aims are to engage in a dialogue across cultures with other pain specialists and promote good standards of pain management for patients’ benefit; to educate and train through interactive discourse and lectures in both the clinical management and the basic science of pain; and to encourage and share the results of research.
