Acute Pain – Falling Through the Cracks

Kick start your journey at the 2019 Australian Pain Society 39th Annual Scientific Meeting by attending the Acute Pain Day Pre-Conference Workshop. This workshop has been designed to appeal to all clinicians working or interested in acute pain management and offers a broad palette of speakers and topics. The major theme of the IASP Global Year Against Pain in the Most Vulnerable features strongly with speakers presenting on persistent postoperative pain in children and adolescents, the implications of pain for our Indigenous population, acute pain management in the opioid tolerant patient, the impact of codeine rescheduling, the challenge of pain management in patients with comorbid mental health and substance abuse disorders, what happens when patients slip through the cracks from a GP perspective as well as “snapshots” of clinical audits and cases.

The workshop will appeal to those wishing to attend a half day or a whole day.

Target audience: Anaesthetists, acute pain nurses, ward nurses (paediatric and adult), pharmacists, drug and alcohol clinicians.
