National Pain Week 2020:  Featured resources about chronic pain

The resources provide information about what chronic pain is, the lived experience of people living with chronic pain, and  insight into what a day in their life is like. There is also information for people caring for family members or friends living with chronic pain and factsheets available to help people manage their chronic pain.

Featured is ‘Faces of Pain’, a video series of Australians living with various chronic pain conditions who share their personal insights and challenges.  It’s designed to show people living with chronic pain that they are not alone which helps breakdown the stigma associated with it. The videos aim to educate the wider public about chronic pain as well as   to show medical professionals what people in the pain community need from them.
