PNA was formed in October 2021. For over 30 years the Pain Interest Group Nursing Issues (PIGNI - NSW) had provided educational meetings and support to nurses caring for patients experiencing pain. In October 2021 PIGNI became PNA which is a national interest group of keen nurses interest in best practice pain management. We hope to attract interested health care clinicians from metropolitan, regional and remote centres from around Australia

We have an exceptional line up of well-known speakers from the pain management world. There will be opportunity for questions and answers with our speakers and virtual discussion with Sponsors via booths and presentations.

The day has been planned with respect to the International Association (IASP) Global Year “Translating pain knowledge into practice”.
