Partnership Forges Promising Path for Pain Research

Neurovations Partners with Frontiers in Pain Research

to Bring Publishing to the Forefront

Neurovations Education and the Napa Pain Conference (NPC) have partnered with the journal Frontiers in Pain Research to create a publishing opportunity for research in pain intervention. The partnership will ensure abstract publication from the Napa Pain Conference and will forge a pathway for the publication of new pain research articles.

Share your research, clinical outcomes, quality improvement initiatives, practice improvements, or patient care strategies.

NPC’s industry-leading ePoster hall extends the reach of your work to an audience ten times larger than traditional posters.

All scientific abstracts are considered for:

  • ePoster publication
  • Virtual 3-5 minute video presentation
  • In-person presentation
  • Inclusion on Neurovations Education Hub
  • Inclusion in the Abstract Book published by Frontiers in Pain Research
