This week is National Pain Week (20-26 July 2015). National Pain Week is a time to acknowledge the vast number of people across Australia and the world who live day-to-day with chronic pain. National Pain Week initiatives aim to generate healthy conversations about chronic pain, opening up a platform of understanding and acceptance for sufferers of chronic pain who may not otherwise have felt open to discuss their experiences. It’s also an appropriate time to consider the means of support we can all provide the sufferers of pain in our lives. For more, please visit the National Pain Week website (available here).
