Via a partnership with the Pain Research Forum, we are happy to offer a unique science communication training experience for a subset of interested NAPS trainees.
PRF-NAPS Correspondents will reach others in the pain field and outside of NAPS through first-hand reporting online, social media, and creating content that will be shared on the PRF website and promoted over social media.
This may include:
- Scientific session recaps
- Interviews with NAPS faculty
- Blog posts
- Live reporting on social media like Twitter.
- IASP PRF Executive Editor
- Science Journalist and Writer
PRF-NAPS Correspondents will also:
- Receive additional training and support to help hone their science communication and writing skills, and use of digital media before, during, and after NAPS.
- Complete most of their contributions during NAPS itself, but some additional content preparation and editing will need to be completed after NAPS. A small honourarium will be provided to thank the PRF-NAPS Correspondents for their contributions.
To be considered for the PRF-NAPS Correspondents Program, applicants should indicate their interest in the appropriate section of the online application form for NAPS and provide a brief justification for their interest in this opportunity.
