Painaustralia is the national peak body, formed in 2011 to facilitate implementation of the National Pain Strategy.


Our network of consumer and health care organisations creates a strong alliance to work with policy makers, funders, healthcare providers and consumers to transform the way pain is understood and managed.


The National Pain Strategy provides a blueprint for the provision of best-practice assessment, treatment and management of acute, chronic and cancer-related pain.


The goals of the National Pain Strategy are:

  1. People in pain as a national health priority;
  2. Knowledgeable, empowered and supported consumers;
  3. Skilled professionals and best-practice evidence-based care;
  4. Access to interdisciplinary care at all levels;
  5. Quality improvement and evaluation; and
  6. Research to better understand and manage pain
