NEW!  Opportunity to share information and promote discussion within your pain discipline at the conference in Hobart.


The inaugural Australian Pain Society (APS) Discipline Sub Group Forums will be held at the Annual Scientific Meeting to be held in Hobart from 13 April 2014.

The APS is trialing a set of one hour forums, from 5-6pm, immediately prior to the Welcome Reception on Sunday 13 April 2014, in support of each of the following discipline sub groups:

  1. Occupational Therapy
  2. Physiotherapy
  3. Nursing
  4. Researchers: clinical and basic sciences
  5. Clinical Psychology & Psychiatry
  6. Medical

These forums will be conducted at no charge to members.  The setting will be relaxed and informal to promote intra-discipline links across systems and states and to fast-track feedback from members to the APS Board.

To stimulate discussion, there will be a brief agenda and the session will be facilitated to document this feedback.

An APS Board member will be present at each forum to provide a direct conduit from members to the Board.

We encourage your participation in this new endeavour and genuinely seek YOUR feedback.  Please indicate by brief email to the secretariat if you are interested in participating or would like any specific issues to be addressed.  You do not need, to pre-register to attend this event but it would assist organisation if you express your interest in advance.  We look forward to your contribution!
