Are you getting involved?
The National Pain Week team is planning events with several pain services this year. Pain clinicians and their patients are getting on board the Big Red Bus to raise awareness of the lived experiences of people in pain and what can be done about it. Is your service getting involved? There is still time if you want to contact us.
How are Australians managing their pain? Australia’s SECOND Snapshot Survey.
The survey went live during June and results will be published during National Pain Week 2015.
The “Pain, let’s talk about it” conference, the State Library NSW 24th July, 11:30am – 4pm
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.
We hope to see you during National Pain Week. Get in touch if you would like to start talking about how you can get involved.
