  • : Online

1 in 5 Australians lives with chronic pain and almost 1 in 5 GP consultations involve a patient with chronic pain. In the over 65's, this prevalence rises to 1 in 3 consultations. This session will discuss non-opioid treatment options available for managing patients with chronic pain and the treatment continuum, including understanding the place and clinical effectiveness of spinal cord stimulation.
