Basic, Translational, and Clinical Perspectives on Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) (201)

11 am–12 pm Friday, April 27

The prevalence of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) remains high, however, definitive diagnosis is often delayed and treatment is not optimal secondary to lack of knowledge about best practices.
