Emerging themes in pain research forum 20th May 2016
Chronic pain is a complex, common and costly condition. It frequently leads to significant impacts on social and work participation, high levels of health service use and reductions in quality of life. In this forum we give an overview of:
- The complexity of pain as it transitions from an acute state to a chronic condition;
- The role of psychological factors, stress and compensation systems in the development of chronic pain; and
- Best practice approaches for managing chronic pain in general and specialist populations, including pharmacological management and opioid reduction.
Who should attend? This forum is intended for those working clinically or in research, with an interest in the management of pain. This includes:
- Clinicians and managers in Rehabilitation and Pain Management Services;
- Claims workers and managers from the compensation and insurance sector;
- Pain and health researchers.
