For the past 30 years the Pain Interest Group Nursing Issues (PIGNI) has been providing educational meetings and support to nurses caring for patients experiencing pain. PIGNI continues to be a key source of professional development for nurses in Australia.


Traditionally, our meetings attract over 200 nursing and allied health delegates from metropolitan and regional centres around Australia. This year our virtual Professional Day hopes to expand on this and will be open to all Health Professionals Nationally.


The theme this year is ‘Moving On in Pain Management’ and will cover a varied program from acute, chronic and palliative care pain issues. Speakers include an exceptional line up of well-known national and international speakers from the pain world.
