Position statement on procedures

You have until January to provide feedback on the faculty's pilot position statement on procedures in pain medicine.
Subsequent to the consultative forum held in October 2017, the board convened a Procedures Working Group (PWG) to pursue strategic initiatives in the area of procedural pain medicine. A key goal of the faculty's 2018-2022 Strategic Plan is to enhance the suite of FPM educational offerings in Australia, New Zealand and internationally, particularly with respect to procedures.
The position statement in essence makes three important statements of intention. The first statement is a commitment to develop a clinical standard for procedures in pain medicine, the second is a commitment to provide and endorse training for the purposes of credentialing by health services and the third is a commitment to collaborate with other organisations in order to further the aims of promoting safety and quality in the use of these procedures.
The faculty welcomes feedback from fellows, trainees and external stakeholders during the six month pilot period via email.
