Annual Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Pain Society, 2nd – 4th March 2017
Welcome to the Annual Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Pain Society Inc. at The Rutherford Hotel, Nelson from Thursday 2nd to Saturday 4th March 2017.
|Staying active and maintaining a fulfilling lifestyle despite the pain can be a great challenge for persistent pain sufferers. Our theme this year is “Active and Able – Independent with Pain”. The focus of the conference is two-fold. It looks at ways in which pain patients can be assisted in remaining active despite the pain, be it maintaining work, or continuing with leisure activities, school or sports. It also aims at equipping professionals with up to date skills which can be taken to the clinic and applied straight away to improve patient outcomes.|
