This week is Australia’s first National Pain Week. In recognition of this we have a few more of the very popular “Chronic Pain DVDs” available for DANA members. If you would like to receive a copy send an email (with your full postal address) to [email protected]. The DVDs were donated by the “Australian Pain Management Association”. You can read more about them at this link. Check out their Facebook page at the same time.
Some other sites that are worth exploring if you have an interest in pain include “Chronic Pain Australia” which can be found here.
The NOI Group is an interesting site to visit. Their prime focus is the nervous system. Check out “NOI Notes”. It is intended to inspire thinking and discussion for clinicians and pain sufferers. Read more at this link.
And don’t miss “Body in Mind” where you can read about research into the role of the brain in chronic pain. Follow this link.
Finally, set about an hour aside to watch and listen to a really informative and entertaining lecture (Pain. Is it all inthe mind?)by Professor Lorimer Moseley from the University of South Australia about the brain and pain. Watch it on Youtube.
