The Development of Pain Medicine in Taiwan through the Establishment of WIP Taiwan Section  

The World Institute of Pain was founded in 1993 as a worldwide organization that aims to promote the best  practice of pain medicine for the 21st century.  WIP's    mission is to bring together the most recognized experts in the field of pain medicine throughout the world for the advancement and standardization of interventional   pain practice and the achievement of improved standards of care for pain patients. WIP fulfills its mission through sponsorship and endorsement of educational and training programs for pain physicians. These programs are aimed at facilitating the development of practice guidelines and standards of examining and assessing competency in     physicians who specialize in interventional pain practice. Through educational initiatives, including WIP World Congresses, regional symposia, and practical  workshops on interventional pain practice, WIP helps promote consensus building among experts on the effectiveness of existing techniques and avenues for advancement of   therapeutic performances.
In 2001 and 2014, WIP began to implement the certification exams for fellow interventional pain physicians (FIPP) and certified interventional pain sonologist (CIPS) respectively. Until now, the physicians have participated certification in 59 countries. In 2016, WIP commissioned National Taiwan University, College of Medicine  and Taiwan Pain Society to initiate interventional pain   symposium, workshop and FIPP/CIPS exams (SWE) in Taipei, where is the development base for WIP in asian region. Two  SWEs have been successfully held in 2019 and 2020. The Ministry of the Interior of Taiwan approved the establishment of the official WIP Taiwan Section in March 2020. In addition to promoting and participating in WIP activities, the task of the new-born society is to make pain experts in Taiwan to participate in the international society to interact with international pain experts, which will affect the development of pain medicine in Taiwan with great impact.
