Here are the details:
Guest speaker physiotherapist, Claire Krievs, will talk about chronic pain assessment and management, discussing the mechanisms of chronic pain, what to expect in an assessment, and evidence-based management strategies.
The talk will go for about 45 minutes, followed by the usual opportunity for members to relax and have a chat. Tea, coffee, and biscuits will be provided – but you can bring your own lunch if you'd like to.
The cost for each meeting is a gold coin for members, $5 for non-members. We'd love to see you there.
Sofia is at the western end of Cabra College (i.e. the seaside end, not the hills end). The Circle Line goes past there, and there are bus stops for other routes on Goodwood Road for those who can walk further. Go in the gate marked Sofia - it's the next gate along travelling towards the sea from the Cabra College entry. The conference room is in the modern building to the left, at the end of the lane. There is a small car park immediately to the left from the beginning of the lane.
Please wear warm comfortable loose fitting clothing and you may like to bring a rug or cushion. You can sit in a chair or on a cushion or lie on a carpeted floor if unwell.
Many people with ME/CFS are extremely chemically sensitive, so we ask attendees to refrain from wearing aftershaves, perfumes etc, and please refrain from smoking at our meetings. We will make every effort to clear the venue of fragrances and chemicals. There have been MCS issues there in the past and we have been in contact with Sofia's management to find ways to minimise or remove any potential issues for future meetings. We will continue to make every effort we can to minimise these problems at our meetings.
Please note that details for this program may change.
