At 10am Dr Coralie Wales will open the day with an overview of what matters to people living with chronic pain, based on analysis of their viewpoints at the 2016 Conference in Western Sydney.  Coralie is the President of Chronic Pain Australia and you can find out more about her by clicking here. Today is a co-design opportunity for people living in Western Sydney to collaborate with clinicians, managers, planners and others interested in improving things for people living with chronic pain.

At 10.20am we'll meet Ms Jenni Johnson from the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) Pain Network. Jenni will share the work that the ACI has been doing for many years to strengthen public health services to provide the support that people in pain need.  Their website is terrific and features the Pain Bytes information hub

The Pain Management Network brings together consumers and clinicians to promote equity of access to pain management services for patients with chronic pain and determine priorities for action. It also develops and supports implementation of new evidence-based models of care to improve integration and co-ordination of care between hospital-based specialist multidisciplinary pain clinics and community and primary health services. The Pain Network offers specialist care within a pain clinic environment but also aims to develop knowledge management strategies aimed at the community, addressing the stigma associated with chronic pain, and provides resources for primary care practitioners to better manage patients with chronic pain.

At 10.45 the workshop will begin. Much like the style of a Q&A, everything in the conversation will be recorded and analysed to prepare for a co-designed pain service for western Sydney.

At 1pm the workshop will be complete.
