Procedures Working Group

The Procedures Working Group, chaired by vice-Dean Dr Mick Vagg, has taken the feedback from the successful forum in 2017 to inform the development of the FPM’s approach to procedures in pain medicine.

The first stage has involved articulating the faculty’s position on procedures in pain medicine. A draft position statement is being finalized and will be available for consultation on the website in July 2018. 

The next stage in the process will be the development of a set of standards for the conduct of procedures. The final stage will consider training and educational offerings for trainees and fellows.

Feedback from fellows, trainees and other stakeholder groups will be sought throughout the process.
