Pharmacology in Pain Management Workshop

Translating current evidence in the management of nociplastic pain conditions into clinical practice


Date: Sunday 10 April 2022
Time: 1.30pm - 5.00pm


The intended audience includes GPs, Pharmacists, Specialists and other Allied Health professionals with interest in pharmacology and its application in persistent pain within the clinical setting.   

In line with the IASP Global year of translating knowledge into practice, this interactive workshop will focus on the evidence-based learnings of nociplastic pain conditions.   It will explore, pharmacological, complementary medicines and the possible correlations of the gut microbiome in chronic pain conditions.  We’ll also explore the evidence of placebo response and techniques and its influential role in each of our interactions with patients having a magnifying (or inhibiting) the powerful medication we dispense.  

The workshop will include a case study for practical application of principles that will be addressed by the various expert speakers. There will be opportunities for questions and networking with peers, so that current evidence-based knowledge can be optimised and translated in everyday practice.
