2022 FPM Symposium

Join us in Perth on Friday 29 April for the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) Symposium. Registration is now open! Please visit the ASM website to register.


This will be a face-to-face, full-day satellite event to the ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), so it will be an incredible opportunity to reconnect with your colleagues and enjoy the in-person learning experience. And if you can’t make it over to Perth, you’re welcome to attend as a virtual delegate. We’ll be livestreaming all sessions, and delegates will have unlimited on demand access to the entire scientific program through our OnAIR virtual event platform for 12 months after the meeting.

Scientific program

Our theme for the day is “Adapting”. We’re exploring challenging topics such as headache and orofacial pain, and discussing our developing profession and how we support future pain specialists with education and wellbeing. There’ll also be a session devoted to the intriguing intersection of pain medicine and rehabilitation. Registration will open on Friday 26 November.


We’re excited to welcome our two FPM international speakers, Professor Bart Morlion and Professor Claudia Sommer, presenting virtually from Belgium and Germany respectively.

    Director of the Leuven Centre for Algology & Pain Management at the University Hospitals of Leuven and clinical professor at the University of Leuven
