There is still time if you want to contact us.

We hope to see you in Sydney – a great line up of speakers including Anne-Marie Elias @ChiefDisrupter (UTS Design and Innovation Centre) How do we disrupt the stigmatizing culture around people in pain? Prof Phil Siddall, Ms Petrea King, and many more. Displays include NPS Medicinewise who will launch their new Communication Cards for people in pain, the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation who has again collaborated with the State Library to release a second tranche of pain resources through the NSW Library network, Quantum Pain Management, and many more. The Q & A at the end of the conference will again be stimulating and fun.
