Pharmacy Daily - - Front page -

PAINAUSTRALIA has en­dorsed the Na­tional Pain Strat­egy as ‘fit for pur­pose’ to re­duce Aus­tralia’s cur­rent pain bur­den, fol­low­ing a Jun gath­er­ing of con­sumer and health ex­perts in Can­berra who agreed that it sets out a clear frame­work for sup­port­ing best prac­tice pain man­age­ment.

The Roundtable agreed that the Strat­egy should guide the de­vel­op­ment of the Na­tional Strate­gic Ac­tion Plan on Pain Man­age­ment, which is be­ing funded by the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment.

“The key goals of con­sumer empowerment, ex­pand­ing ac­cess to in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary care and un­der­stand­ing pain through re­search re­main crit­i­cal,” Painaustralia said in a com­mu­niqué.
