Calling occupational therapists working in pain management!


New Zealand Pain Society Annual Scientific Meeting: 23 – 26 July 2009

Calling all occupational therapists working in the field in New Zealand to register for the pre-conference occupational therapy meeting.

22 July, 3.30pm – 6.30pm (with informal dinner out afterwards!)

‘Doing and being: Occupational therapy issues in chronic pain management’

This will be a facilitated discussion and consensus building around issues in pain management common to occupational therapists.  Topics yet to be confirmed may include:

  • defining activity pacing
  • exposure therapy for pain-related anxiety and avoidance
  • goal setting
  • providing occupational therapy as a single discipline
  • working in teams

Registration will be a tiny $40, and the opportunity to network – priceless!
