Tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa
Round two! Due to the disruption caused by COVID-19 our 2020 Conference was unable to go ahead. However, we are delighted to be able to invite you back to Waitangi in the Bay of Islands to participate in the Annual Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Pain Society Inc. from
Thursday 18th to Saturday 20th March 2021.
We have retained the title of the meeting “Making the Connection : Cortex, Culture and Community.” We have invited back all our international and national speakers and for the most part all are happy to deliver their talks in 2021.
All of us at some time in our lives will experience pain; for many of us that is a short lived experience and we move on but for around 20% or more of the population that pain continues and can become a disabling, distressing and disrupting experience and frequently a challenging issue for health providers working with people in this situation.
The meeting in Waitangi will provide us with the opportunity to gather, discuss, learn, share knowledge, evidence, best practice and debate to assist with providing up to date approaches to this challenging area of health care. Part of the focus of “Making the Connection” will be looking at and sharing ways to deliver services to Tangata Whenua and also to people outside of main centres in areas where specialists are not available and where access can be a challenge. International speakers will provide their expertise along with a wide range of New Zealand based clinicians and researchers.
Many of you have transferred your 2020 conference registration to 2021 and we thank you for your support. We welcome others to register for our 2021 meeting and we look forward to seeing you in the beautiful Bay of Islands.
