Communication and Awareness Reference Group update
The newly formed Communication and Awareness Reference Group (CARG) met for the first time in September to get the ball rolling on building a comprehensive and current resource hub of information about chronic pain.
This group of the best and most informed experts across the sector will provide advice and guidance over the coming months to ensure our website is a gateway for best practice, evidence-based pain education and information in Australia.
Providing quality information will hopefully empower people living with pain to lead their own treatment pathway, as well as enhance the knowledge and understanding of health professionals working in this space. You can read our blog about the CARG here, and we will keep you updated on this project as it develops.
Our thanks to expert members of the CARG for their input including:
Dr Chris Hayes, Painaustralia Board Director and Pain Management Specialist
A/Prof Anne Burke (Australian Pain Society)
Angie Clerc-Hawke (Pain Revolution)
Sister Mary-Lynne Cochrane (Consumer Advisory Group – Chair)
Jenny Johnson (Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine)
A/Prof Michael Vagg (Faculty of Pain Medicine)
Dr Milana Vortrubec (The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners)
Dr Dianne Wilson (Australian Physiotherapy Association)
