- Who we are

About Pain Revolution

Pain Revolution is a movement charged with changing how people understand pain in rural and regional communities in Australia.

We're providing support to local health professionals to become pain experts and spread the word in their community, and we'll mentor and support them to do that.

Chronic pain is a huge burden that we can do something about, we know enough now about recovery and we can do something about it if we flip the way we think about and understand pain with a whole of community approach.

About us

Pain Revolution is a people powered movement, striving to change how we care for people in pain.

We believe that this will be most successful if we do it together! Pain Revolution is a vision driven collaboration of researchers, clinicians, people with lived experience and peak bodies.

We aim to inspire and enable each other and communities to make sustainable, positive change. As a collective, we strive for excellence and promote transparency, honesty and accountability in everything we do.

Pain Revolution respects diversity of stories and all the parties who comprise the pain care system.
