Chronic pain is a rapidly-growing medical condition in Australia, with 1 in 5 Australians living with chronic pain!
Affecting people of all ages – children and adolescents right through to elderly – chronic pain can be debilitating for sufferers because of the severity or persistence of their experience.
This week is National Pain Week (26 July to 1 August).
Chronic Pain Australia have organised a number of events and webinars to build awareness and education. They have also released results to a 2022 National Pain Survey in the context of their strategic mission to ensure that all Australians living with chronic pain receive Triple A standards of care – Awareness, Accessibility and Affordability.
