Event description
Kick off the evening with dinner and networking before diving into a local patient story and panel discussion on chronic pain management.

About this Event

Chronic pain is a complex and often challenging condition to manage. It can range from mild to severe and can come and go or continue day after day. Evidence tells us that long-term use of opiates results in minimal improvements in pain measures and little or no evidence for functional restoration. That’s why non-pharmacological strategies and interdisciplinary chronic pain management is so important.

What to expect

Kick off the evening with some dinner and networking before diving into a local patient story and panel discussion. We’ll explore tools and resources, the use of multidisciplinary services to support patients living with chronic non-cancer pain, and the evidence around the efficacy and the usefulness of different programs. The goal being to increase your confidence when assessing and managing chronic pain in the Coffs Harbour/Bellingen region.
