FPM Procedures in pain medicine forum 2017

Friday October 20, 2017
ANZCA House
630 St Kilda Road
Melbourne
 
This forum comprising representation from Faculty Fellows, professional organisations, and regulatory bodies marks the beginning of a new phase of engagement by FPM in the area of procedural pain medicine. Attendees will hear presentations concerning debates about cost effectiveness and efficacy of defined procedures, remuneration for procedures, and the role of the Faculty in providing training and potentially credentialing units which represent the best practice that our new Fellows should be trained in.
 
As well as the presentations, there will be multiple opportunities for engaging in discussion and this constructive interaction is likely to clarify and further refine the direction that the Faculty takes over the next five-year strategic planning period.
 
We encourage Fellows with a strong interest in the provision of high quality procedures as part of the practice of pain medicine to register so that we have the broad as well as possible representation to provide input into this discussion. This forum is the beginning of the process, which will be ongoing over the next few months. The quality of the discussion and therefore of the further work which FPM undertakes in this arena can only be as good as the contribution of our Fellows.
We look forward to seeing you there.
