painSTAR: Pain School for Translation And Research



painSTAR 2024

The Australian Pain Society is delighted to annouce that painSTAR is returning to the Novotel Barossa Valley Resort, Adelaide Hills, from 10-14 November 2024.

painSTAR brings together a group of exceptional clinical and early-mid career academic researchers to participate in an intensive program focussed on linking the bench to bedside.

Pain Schools foster interdisciplinary collaboration, accelerated translation of research findings to care delivery, and the development of skills to help influence political/health service systems - all topics that are critical for high quality translational pain research but are rarely covered in standard teaching/conference curriculum. Consumer representatives will once again be part of the faculty, providing attendees with exposure to the personal and social consequences of living with persistent pain, and providing inspiration about the importance of translational pain research.

Applications for painSTAR 2024 will open early April 2024. For further information please visit:
