SPEAKERS As soon as our speakers are confirmed we will include their details below. Our speakers will always have working knowledge of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, living with CRPS or disability due to CRPS. Barrister Pankaj Madan - 'CRPS and Legal Claims; the role of the Barrister' Mr Mohammed Akbar Hussain, Neurosurgeon from RVI in Newcastle - 'Neuromodulation as a treatment option for CRPS' Miriam Parkinson - Advanced Occupational Therapist - 'Managing Your CRPS Flare-Ups' I am an Advanced Occupational Therapist working for East Lancashire Hospitals Trust. I qualified in 2000 and settled very quickly into the field of hand therapy. My first patient with CRPS was a very severe case and I knew nothing! This sparked a real passion in me and I have now subspecialised in CRPS for almost 20 years leading to promoting CRPS awareness and services within our trust. Presently, I work mostly in hand therapy with more acute CRPS in the upper limb and, to a lesser extent, in our Pain Management Service to support patients with more chronic CRPS (upper and lower limb) as part of a wider MDT. Through my involvement with the British Association of Hand Therapists I have had the opportunity to teach on CRPS assessment and management at national conference in 2011 and 2020 and also contribute to the RCP CRPS guidelines revised edition 2018.
