2015 Australian Pain Society Annual Scientific Meeting


David, Lisa, Karlene and Lauren have just spent 4 days in Brisbane at the 2015 Australian Pain Society Annual Scientific Meeting.


The conference brings together an array of international researchers and clinicians to discuss contemporary approaches to the management of pain.APS logo


Highlights of the conference were talks on brain plasticity in chronic pain, the yummy morning teas, brain circuits and mediating pain, inflammatory cytokines and pain, the even yummier lunches, the opioids wars, toxins and pain, brain reward motivational circuits, the pick me up afternoon teas, management of musculoskeletal pain and maybe the odd beverage to offset the Brisbane heat.


All the staff have come back with a wealth of new knowledge, an eagerness to augment the new ideas into their current treatment approaches and slightly larger waist lines.
