2020 Australian Pain Society 40th Annual Scientific Meeting

Event Notes:

This is the only multidisciplinary conference in Australia offering insights into the complex nature of pain management from a variety of medical, nursing and allied health perspectives. The Scientific Program Committee is thrilled to have procured three most impressive international speakers: Professor John Cryan, from University College, Cork, Ireland, who’s current research focusses on the interaction between brain, gut and microbiome and how it applies to stress, psychiatric and immune-related disorders. A/Professor Erin Krebs from University of Minnesota Medical School, USA. Her research addresses chronic pain and opioid analgesics. Dr Janet Bultitude from the University of Bath in the UK, whose research interests are pain, attention and sensorimotor interactions, as well as neurorehabilitation, and the ‘neglect-like’ sensory system changes in complex regional pain syndrome. The Australian Pain Society continues to align their conference theme with the IASP Global Year; in 2020 this is, ‘the IASP Global Year for the Prevention of Pain’. The program will be full of inspiring national and international speakers who will provide a veritable glance at the most complex, challenging, provocative and indeed interesting topic: Pain.
