Welcome to National Pain Week 2020! Each year Chronic Pain Australia, the national voice of people living with chronic pain, organises National Pain Week to champion the needs of the many Australians living with some form of chronic pain.

On this site you will find information about what chronic pain is, read about the lived experience of people living with chronic pain and get an insight into what a day in their life is like. There is also information for people caring for a family member or friend living with chronic pain and factsheets available to help people live with their chronic pain.

Join Chronic Pain Australia to officially launch National Pain Week for 2020. Although we can't be together physically this year, we will still see each other through a Facebook Live broadcast to launch the week and announce the results of this year's National Pain Survey. A panel discussion featuring people living with chronic pain and health professionals will then discuss what the results mean for the future of how we manage pain in Australia. Make sure you tune into the Chronic Pain Australia Facebook page on Monday 27 July at 12:00pm AEST.

The results of the survey will be made available on this website the morning of Monday 27 July.
