Winner of 2013 anzca media award announced

New Zealand journalist Virginia McMillan has won the 2013 ANZCA Media Award for her story "Pain, finding perspectives." The article was the cover story of the December 4, 2013 edition of New Zealand Doctor and examined why chronic pain is so difficult to treat.

 

"This article was sparked by a comment from an anaesthetist that there is limited understanding of pain management in the wider health community," Ms McMillan said.

 

Ms McMillan's piece was among entries across print, radio and television media and was judged the best news story or feature about anaesthesia or pain medicine that appeared in the Australian or New Zealand media in 2013.
