About this event

Start the evening with some dinner and networking and get to know who’s in the room. Food will be followed by a presentation on best practice evidence, local patient stories, a panel discussion and a look at effective tools and resources. There will be plenty of time to ask questions of your multidisciplinary peers to increase your confidence when assessing and managing chronic pain in the Kempsey Macleay region.

Learning outcomes

  • Describe the different interdisciplinary models of care for chronic pain management
  • Examine non-pharmacological strategies available to patients living with chronic pain
  • Identify local referral pathways for managing chronic pain in the Kempsey Macleay region
  • Identify the limited role of opioids in chronic non-cancer pain and ways in which to start a deprescribing conversation

Who should attend? GPs and GP registrars, psychologists and any primary health care professional with an interest in improving outcomes for patients living with chronic non cancer pain in the Kempsey Macleay region.

Why chronic pain?

3.24 million Australians are living with chronic pain. Long-term continuing medication can have little effect, impacting on a person’s physical, social and mental wellbeing and ultimately their quality of life. Prescription of analgesics and other medications in chronic pain is not the only management option available. Studies have shown that, in chronic pain, non-pharmacological interventions are much more effective and can have significantly fewer side effects. By working together we can enhance knowledge, effectiveness and innovation in pain management.
