Our mission is to improve the quality of life of people living with pain, their families and carers, and to minimise the social and economic burden of pain on individuals and the community. We advocate for improved health policy and practice; we promote access to education and training for health professionals; and we work to raise awareness of chronic pain within the community through media and education campaigns, to help reduce the stigma of this silent epidemic.
