The APS ASM 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. With an overriding theme of "Expanding Horizons”, APS 2017 will provide an extensive program including pre-conference workshops, international keynote speakers, national speakers and topical sessions.
From an international perspective, we have been fortunate enough to secure three impressive speakers: Professor Stephen Hunt from University College, London; Professor Judith Turner from the University of Washington and Dr Sean Mackay from Stanford University. Their combined knowledge spans molecular biology, neural plasticity, psychological therapies, body-behaviour-environment links, issues associated with opioid therapy and contemporary approaches to outcome assessment (just to name a few areas). They will be joined by a range of local and national speakers who will provide a diverse look at all things pain related.
