2024 FPM Spring Meeting

On behalf of the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) Organising Committee, we invite you to join us for the annual FPM Spring Meeting from 18 to 20 October 2024 at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland, New Zealand. The theme for this year’s meeting is “Collegial intelligence in pain medicine”

The spring meeting brings together experts from various specialties to discuss the latest updates and current topics in pain medicine. We aim to share information, evidence, and experiences with a focus on a pragmatic approach to optimise practice. We’ll present issues pertinent to today’s challenges with opportunities to discuss and propose solutions to our greatest problems. The event will help update core knowledge, as well as find ways to move forward in this constantly challenging and vital area of medical care.

The event will feature a wide range of topics and discussions, including updates on other specialties that will be beneficial to pain specialists with speakers sourced from orthopaedics, rheumatology, neurosurgery, genetics, and more to come! We hope to develop interdisciplinary collaboration and learning, and to promote the development of evidence-based pain management solutions with the aim of improving patient care. The meeting will also provide an opportunity for researchers to present their work. 

We have some fantastic workshops on offer to help you fulfill your emergency response continuing professional development (CPD) requirements.

There will be a welcome reception held at the meeting venue on Friday after the day’s sessions to catch up with your colleagues. On Saturday evening, join us for dinner at the Quarterdeck at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, with stunning views of the yachts and harbour.

Stay tuned for further information coming soon including a jam packed program.
