We are honoured to introduce the International Keynote Speakers for the
2020 Australian Pain Society 40th Annual Scientific Meeting
to be held at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart next April.
Please give a warm welcome to Dr Janet Bultitude.
Janet Bultitude is a Senior Lecturer at the Psychology Department and Centre for Pain Research at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom. Her research interests are in pain, attention, sensorimotor interaction, and neurorehabilitation.
Drawing from her background in stroke research, her most recent work has focussed on “neglect-like” changes and other sensory symptoms in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and how these could be targeted to bring about pain relief.
An Australian, she moved to the United Kingdom after her undergraduate degree at the Australian National University and completed a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at Bangor University in Wales.
Following this, she was a postdoctoral researcher at the Space and Action laboratory at the Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (INSERM) in Lyon, France, and a Junior Research Fellow at Oxford University in England. She has published in leading neuroscience journals and given invited presentations and conference talks around the world.
Dr Bultitude will be presenting the Sunderland Lecture, discussing The role and relevance of neuropsychological changes in chronic pain. You can also see Dr Bultitude present Bodily and sensory sensitivity in complex regional pain syndrome and fibromyalgia: Systemic changes beyond the diagnostic criteria.
We are delighted to have Dr Janet Bultitude involved in APS 2020, we hope you will be able to attend and enjoy everything this ASM has to offer.
