REQUIREMENTS: Case studies should be those of relevant topics on pain. These will be reviewed according to content, originality, the literature review, style and organization.

PURPOSE: The purpose of the case study presentations at the TPS 10th Annual Scientific Meeting is strictly educational. Case studies should detail a particular clinical case, describe the clinical background of the patient and address any relevant evidence the physician discovered. They should discuss investigations undertaken in order to determine a diagnosis or differentiate between possible diagnoses and should indicate the course of treatment the patient underwent as a result. As a whole, your case study should be an informative and useful part of every physician's medical education, both during training and on a continuing basis.

PRESENTATION: All selected entries will have the opportunity to be posted to the TPS website and circulated to the meeting attendees.  The top 5 selected cases will be invited to be presented live at the TPS 10th Annual Scientific Meeting. All presenting fellows and residents will receive complimentary registration to the meeting. Presenters will have approximately 5 minutes each to speak about their case study on Saturday, November 3, 2018.
