Welcome to National Pain Week 2014National Pain Week

This year we celebrate National Pain Week by creating awareness that PAIN IS AGELESS. Thank you to everyone who has completed our Snapshot Survey – look out for the results during NPW14 when we publish the findings.

Watch out for the Big Red London Bus which will be cruising around Sydney in the run up to the NPW14 Pain is Ageless Rally – the Chronic Pain Australia crew will be on hand with free stuff, fact sheets and more. Jump on the bus and join us for the 24 July 12 -2pm Martin Place rally in Sydney to be part of a Q & A with a range of people who are affected by the problem as well as clinicians and researchers.

You can register for our 10,000 faces of pain gallery which is building year by year – either online or at the rally. Lots of fun, information, music and things to do.

On the NPW14 website you can find help for your pain no matter what your age and stage of life – go to the resources pages here – and download a media kit for your workplace too.
