What are Flash Talks?

Flash Talks are 10-minute individual scholarly presentations. They are brief, punchy, and convey information about a novel clinical protocol, perspective, technique, or research results. For instance, one Flash Talk may describe an innovative interdisciplinary program. Another may describe results for a translational clinical trial or pilot study.

Each Flash Talk presentation is limited to 10 slides. Slides must adhere to the AAPM guidelines and receive approval from the conference planning committee.

Flash Talk topics may be wide-ranging and may include the following regarding acute and chronic pain:

  • Pain evaluation and diagnosis
  • Interprofessional pain treatment 
  • Telehealth
  • Pharmacology
  • Treatment mechanisms
  • Basic and translational science
  • Analgesic clinical trials
  • Technological advances
  • Pain disparities and underserved populations
  • Behavioral health
  • Professional pain education
  • Patient education
  • Public policy
  • Advocacy
