The University of Tasmania is conducting an online survey of people who use prescription opioids to manage chronic pain, and the effects that such medications may have on other parts of life.
APMA - Australian Pain Management Assoc.
APMA is very pleased to congratulate one of our newest Committee of Management members Phil Thompson on his recent award - 2018 Queensland Young Australian of the Year.
Phil is a 29 year old veterans’ champion from Townsville, Australia's "garrison city". After enlisting in the Australian Army in 2006 at the age of 17, Phillip Thompson was deployed to East Timor and later Afghanistan. While on a dismounted patrol in 2009, Phil was wounded when an improvised explosive device detonated just a metre away. The incident left Phil with an array of medical conditions – including hearing loss and tinnitus, post-traumatic stress disorder, major depressive disorder and a traumatic brain injury – all of which have changed Phil’s life dramatically.

The Australian Pain Management Association held a nationwide online survey seeking opinions about medicinal cannabis and experiences of the use of non-medicinal cannabis products for the treatment of chronic pain.
There was an overwhelming response. In under one week almost 600 consumers completed the survey questions 85% of those live with chronic pain.
The survey was promoted via the Australian Pain Management Association Inc. (APMA) main website and on APMA’s main Facebook page and other APMA social media channels.
