Rural Outreach Tour 2020
Pain Revolution Rural Outreach Tour is an awareness-raising, fund-raising and community outreach event. The cycling component of the Tour is critical for attracting attention, building camaraderie, raising critical funds to support Pain Revolution's wider activities, spreading the influence of Pain Revolution, providing a proper physical challenge and an outrageously awesome cycling and educational experience.
In March 2020, alongside the cyclists we are bringing a team of pain educators to regional Victoria to run free community-based pain education to both health professionals and the general public in– Geelong, Frankston, Wonthaggi, Traralgon, Sale, Bairnsdale, Orbost, Omeo, Bright and Wangaratta.
We are all about collaboration, please get in contact if you would like to get involved in the revolution in these towns.
Thanks again to Corey and Katie from FXNL Media for recording the events of the Tour in 2019.
It's time for a Revolution in the way we talk about, and treat, persisting pain.
"We need to engage with this massive problem in a new way, give people the resources to recover and find the best methods to prevent persisting pain"
- Professor Lorimer Moseley, University of South Australia
To do that, we have to get the science of pain out of the research lab, and into the community.
The aim of the Local Pain Educator (LPE) Program is to embed the capacity to deliver best practice pain education and care within rural and regional communities while safeguarding the well-being and resilience of the GP and allied health workforce delivering it
On our annual Pain Revolution Rural Outreach Tour, we take a passionate and dedicated team out on the road to reach rural communities. We cycle into towns to run community and health professional education events, and establish support and knowledge-growth networks that span the country. The cyclists challenge their physical abilities on the week-long tour and each of them raises much-needed funds to support the Local Pain Educator Program.
The View from the Road 2018
10 outreach events. 1000+ participants. 250 engaged users of the Brain Bus. 35 media interviews. 677 individual donors. $77,498 and counting raised!
Thanks to FXNL Media who joined us on the road, and created this video showcasing the second year of our outreach tour.
The Brain Bus is an opportunity for people to learn about pain, and the science behind it, in community locations along the Pain Revolution ride route.
In 2018, Dr Tasha Stanton and Dr Dan Harvie brought the Brain Bus to Wollongong, Nowra, Canberra, Cooma and Albury-Wodonga.
The Brain Bus gives people the opportunity to understand pain by experiencing some of the cool science that explains how and why we hurt, and some new ways we can think about the path to recovery.
