Since the 13th World Congress on Pain in 2010, the collaboration between the editorial board of PAIN and the scientific program committee of the IASP World Congress on Pain has provided The Biennial Review of Pain. This special issue is a celebration of the latest in cutting edge research, management, and education, as highlighted this year by presentations at the 2022 World Congress in Toronto, Canada.
The COVID-19 pandemic has united us all with new shared threats, challenges, and opportunities that have been unprecedented over the past century. In response to all this. All of us in global communities of pain research, management, and education have demonstrated resilience, coping, and unyielding determination to continue advancing our shared mission of improved pain relief worldwide.
