Specialists in Pain International Network (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.

SPIN group
Membership of SPIN reflects the various health care professionals involved in pain management and includes psychologists, nurses, doctors and physiotherapists. SPIN members all either work exclusively or have a specialist interest in pain medicine in both clinical and academic arenas. SPIN members have a strong academic record holding many research grants and with hundreds of peer reviewed publications in the field of pain.

SPIN became a registered charity in 2007.
