Pain in Childhood (Morning and Afternoon Workshops)

The workshop will involve discussion groups and be relevant to the whole of the multidisciplinary team looking after the child with pain. It is also split into two half day programs. Join us for the morning, afternoon or both.


Basic Pain Research (Morning Workshop)

The workshop will present current basic pain research in Australia to showcase the community, and discuss mechanisms underlying nociception: from characterisation of basic molecular and cellular processes, though to their impact on clinical outcomes.

We will showcase the next generation of pain researchers, including local Tasmanian research, and a special “neuro-immune” topical session, to look deeper into processes and therapeutic opportunities for inflammatory pain conditions. This will involve presentations from clinical and basic pain research investigators with expertise in arthritis, followed by a panel discussion.


Fundamentals of Pain (Morning Workshop)

The Fundamentals of Pain pre-conference workshop is a succinct overview of the physiology, pharmacology and clinical approach to the assessment and management of pain.  Aimed at the general practitioner, specialist or allied health clinician wishing to update their knowledge and approach to the patient suffering pain.

This workshop will utilise a socio-psycho-bio model of pain, developing a mechanistic based approach to pain management.  A case study will be presented for open discussion, utilising the perspectives of a multidisciplinary audience.

This workshop will compliment those with an interest in attending an afternoon session of pharmacology, acute pain or physiotherapy topics.
