Society for Pediatric Pain Medicine – SPPM

The Society for Pediatric Pain Medicine (SPPM) is a Society organized within the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia. The SPPM concept originated with directors and key leaders of acute and chronic pediatric pain medicine programs, who believed there was a need for a new society because of rapid advancement of highly specialized knowledge in the field, a great increase in the numbers of patients, and strong desire for collaboration and advocacy for infants, children, and adolescents with painful conditions.
