Held in Südkärnten, Austria at the Hotel Amerika-Holzer, discussion topics included increased pain syndromes as a result of missions, as well as how pain syndromes may be prevented. Research has shown that those who have served in both combat missions and peacekeeping operations are at an increased risk for pain syndromes. The ultimate aim of the workshop will be critical assessment of existing knowledge and identification of directions for future actions. The co-organizers of the workshop alongside Professor Brenda K. Wiederhold included Professor Kresimir Cosic, Professor Mark D. Wiederhold and Colonel Carl Castro. Full papers will be published with IOS Press TO ORDeR:
