Dear Esteemed Member ISSP,

Greetings from the Secretariat of ISSP!

I take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for giving me opportunity to serve as the Hon. Secretary of ISSP. We are indeed privileged to be part of an association that started as a dream of our seniors and was guided and nurtured by the vision of many great and noble stalwarts. For me it is a very special privilege to be its Hon. Secretary, having served the association in various capacities.

All these years’ efforts have been made in right direction and we are simply trying to carry forward the legacy.  As we all know, pain medicine as a speciality has been increasing at a very fast pace and this phase of rapid evolution provides us with endless opportunities to learn, experience and share. We all have to make it from the new speciality to the most sought after speciality. I welcome you all to contribute in that would help us share all that we stand for.

We are looking ahead with hope and a positive attitude to see an even more vibrant and academically active association that can offer a meaningful platform to our younger colleagues. We all need to work hard, everyday to take this speciality of pain medicine to new heights keeping in mind the ethics and the zeal to learn and share knowledge.  We all are working very hard and doing good job in the speciality. We just need to create our own evidences based on the treatment we provide and the population we treat.

ISSP will soon have its own protocols and guidelines and our SIG’s are working hard to give them a better shape. I seek the Good wishes and blessings of seniors, friends and all the members in the coming years.

Jai Hind
