Smertevidenskab og kliniske overvejelser

ChamPain Night | Featuring Lorimer Moseley & friends


Science is ment to inform clinical practice but dissemination of scientific evidence and application to clinical practice is not an easy task. This special event seeks to facilitate discussions between clinicians and scientists inspired by a brief inputs from invited specialists and champagne. The aim is to challenge our beliefs and to understand the boundaries of our current understanding of what pain is.

To ensure a hyggelig and intimate atmosphere this event is limited to 50 seats.

About Medical Museion

Medical Museion is situated in the building of the former Royal Academy of Surgeons. In the anatomical theatre, students were trained in dissection and anatomy. The auditorium, constructed in 1787, is a fine example of the new classicist architecture style favoured by the Danish architect Peter Meyn.
Today, the auditorium is used for teaching, lectures and doctoral defences, and also a concert hall and a venue for different kinds of cultural activities.

Professor Lorimer Moseley from Australia is likely the most accomplished pain-science-disseminator of our time. He will discuss the relationship between pain og the bodily tissues (including the brain) from a 2019-perspective.

Morten Hoegh, editor of, has a background in physiotherapy and pain science. Morten will facilitate discussions and focus his talk on the limitations in the contemporary management of chronic pain.

Dr Jakob Leth Fink is a world leading authority on Aristotle, aka the Godfather of evidence-based medicine. He has published several books on the topic and has featured on Hjernekassen with Dr Peter Lund Madsen. Jakob will discuss how pain and death was conceptualized in the ancient World and draw lines to our understanding of chronic pain today.


Champagne (/ʃæmˈpn/, French: [ʃɑ̃paɲ]) is sparkling wine or, in the EU countries, legally only that sparkling wine which comes from the Champagne region of France. Where EU law applies, this alcoholic drink is produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France following rules that demand, among other things, secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation, specific vineyard practices, sourcing of grapes exclusively from specific parcels in the Champagne appellationand specific pressing regimes unique to the region.[1] Many people use the term Champagne as a generic term for sparkling wine but in some countries, it is illegal to label any product Champagne unless it both comes from the Champagne region and is produced under the rules of the appellation.[2]

Vineyards in the Champagne region of France

Primarily, the grapes Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay are used in the production of almost all Champagne, but a tiny amount of pinot blanc, pinot gris, arbane, and petit meslier are vinified as well. Champagne appellation law allows only grapes grown according to appellation rules in specifically designated plots within the appellation to be used in the production of Champagne.

Champagne became associated with royalty in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. The leading manufacturers made efforts to associate their Champagnes with nobility and royalty through advertising and packaging, which led to popularity among the emerging middle class.[2]
