Pain Management Network

  • In February 2021, the ACI Pain Management Network hosted an online Brief Pain Management refresher course for eight multicultural health workers who completed their full training more than two years ago. The University of Sydney’s Pain Management Research Institute originally developed the training package and resources and delivered the refresher course. Maintaining the skills of these health workers is important, as they provide an invaluable community-based service to the culturally and linguistically diverse community, helping them to self-manage their chronic pain.
  • In March and April, the Network also hosted a new face-to-face facilitator workshop on Brief Pain Management for 10 multicultural health workers. The program covered the educational and practical training that health workers need to be able to run a community group for those experiencing chronic pain. The cultural groups represented included Italian, Arabic, Chinese, Vietnamese, Greek, Macedonian and Farsi.
