Chronic Pain

We are pleased to announce the new Statewide Chron­ic Pain Clin­i­cal Network.

About the network 

The Statewide Chron­ic Pain Clin­i­cal Net­work is being estab­lished to work on improv­ing the pro­vi­sion of inte­grat­ed mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary care for peo­ple with chron­ic pain. 

Chron­ic Pain Care Workshop

A Chron­ic Pain Care Work­shop was held on 25 Feb­ru­ary 2021 with over 120 par­tic­i­pants from across South Australia.

Par­tic­i­pants pro­vid­ed their views on what is ide­al chron­ic pain care, the gaps and bar­ri­ers which pre­vent us from pro­vid­ing that care and poten­tial ways that we can work to over­come those bar­ri­ers. Par­tic­i­pants also pro­vid­ed their views on the pri­or­i­ty areas for the Statewide Chron­ic Pain Clin­i­cal Net­work mov­ing forward.

Next Steps

The feed­back pro­vid­ed by par­tic­i­pants will help inform the Chron­ic Pain Clin­i­cal Net­work Steer­ing Com­mit­tee’s devel­op­ment of a work plan to improve chron­ic pain care in this state.

The CEIH and the Chron­ic Pain Clin­i­cal Net­work Steer­ing Com­mit­tee would like to thank every­one that took part in the work­shop and look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to work with the chron­ic pain care com­mu­ni­ty to improve chron­ic pain in South Australia.
