National plan for living with chronic pain

On 17 June Pain Australia launched the new National Strategic Action Plan for Pain Management. There was an election commitment of $6.8m to deliver better pain management across Australia, as well as the establishment of a National Advisory Council on Pain.

The Plan will now progress to the Australian Health Ministers Council, ahead of being presented to the Council of Australian Government’s for endorsement in the coming weeks.
