Journal of Observational Pain Medicine


Established by Dr Munglani, who is the Editor-in-Chief, in 2012. This Journal has been created in recognition of the fact that not all information or advances in pain medicine can be presented in a randomised controlled fashion.

The Journal publishes papers on clinical practice, basic science, ethics and medico-legal aspects of pain. Issues around suffering, theological, social, psychiatric, psychological, education and resource limitations in pain medicine will be also be considered. It is intended to be a reflective journal and the manner of review and publication emphasises this.
