Inaugural Pain Management Symposium
16 March 2012 to 17 March 2012
Up to 80% of people suffering with chronic pain are missing out on treatment that could improve their health and quality of life.
Despite calls for improved pain education for all health care professionals, undergraduate and graduate training programs have been slow to integrate pain into their curriculum.
This symposium is open to all Sydney students studying in health related disciplines and covers the areas of acute, chronic, paediatric, cancer & oro-facial pain. The topics addressed at the symposium include: the impact of pain, denial of pain relief, pain epidemiology, neurobiology and concepts of pain.
There will be screenings of shorts from the multiaward winning documentary series Life Before Death. Don't forget the the symposium continues on Saturday 17th March.
