Registration open for PainAdelaide 2013


Thanks for your patience folks. PainAdelaide 2013 is now open for registrations. We have had to adjust the price slightly – it is $100 full registration and $65 for full time students (only 40 student places available), and you have the opportunity to pay a bit more if you earn big bucks or you think the programme is just too good to accept at this rock-bottom price.

The programme is jam-packed with quality and diversity. We have four international speakers. We have clinicians and scientists. We have a room that will only hold 150 people, so get in fast.  Click here for the PainAdelaide2013 Program. Click here for the Registration Form – it is a PDF so you will need to fill it out and email or fax or mail it back. First in best dressed.

Pain Adelaide logo small 150x150 Registration open for PainAdelaide 2013PainAdelaide is an interdisciplinary cross-institution collaborative initiative to develop a synergistic and highly-visible pain research community in Adelaide. What does this mean? Well, Adelaide’s three Universities – UniSA, Adelaide & Flinders – all have world class pain researchers doing world class work.

The objectives of PainAdelaide are to improve the quality and impact of pain research and clinical practice in South Australia, and by so-doing, across Australia and abroad. We will do this by:

  • bringing high quality researchers together, to act as ‘cortical prostheses’ for each other, to exploit the unique contributions and intellectual diversity of Adelaide’s Universities, and to facilitate collaboration on interdisciplinary projects;
  • developing a visible pain-focussed presence in Adelaide;
  • directly engaging with, and developing ongoing constructive relationships with, Adelaide’s high quality pain clinicians;
  • fostering a collaborative spirit of intellectual curiosity between researchers, clinicians, stake holders and consumers;
  • confirming and extending Adelaide’s long-standing reputation as a Centre of Excellence in pain research and treatment.

PainAdelaide 2013 is our first meeting.

Chronic Pelvic and Perineal Pain: Consensus on Disease Identity February 4, 2012


Stay tuned for the slide presentations from this event.

Excerpt from whria.com.au

Professor Roger Robert (Nantes, France) and his team come to Sydney 2012

In March 2011, Professor Thierry Vancaillie (Gynaecologist and Pain Medicine Specialist) and Ms Sherin Jarvis (Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist) both from the Women’s Health & Research Institute of Australia (WHRIA) and the Royal Hospital for Women, along with Dr Andreas Loeffler (Orthopaedic Surgeon, Prince of Wales and Prince of Wales Private Hospitals) visited the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (CHU) Nantes, France.

A week was spent working with the team of Professor Roger Robert (Anatomist and Neurosurgeon). The CHU in Nantes has a long-standing history in the treatment of pain syndromes and is a premier centre in Europe. During the week we were very fortunate and honoured to be able to follow the team during its activities; clinical, surgical and educational. This resulted in the introduction of the gluteal approach to pudendal nerve release surgery at the Randwick, Sydney campus and has enhanced our understanding and management of patients suffering from the debilitating condition, “pudendal neuralgia”.

The team from Nantes has agreed to accept our invitation to come to Australia to share their expertise. We trust that you will enjoy the seminar on Saturday 4th February 2012.
