National Pelvic Pain Conference – Latrobe Health Assembly in partnership with The Pelvic Pain Foundation of Australia
Pelvic pain affects a large number of people, yet there is very little information available to Australia’s health industry.
Latrobe Valley has been selected as the location for the 2022 Pelvic Pain Conference thanks to a successful pilot program implemented in 2020 as an initiative of the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone. The pilot program reached a large number of students and teachers, including participation from principals, school counsellors, nurses and parents.
Current evidence and research highlight the opportunity for health practitioners to update their knowledge and practice in pelvic pain management. For this reason, the Latrobe Health Assembly and the Pelvic Pain Foundation of Australia have partnered to deliver the National Pelvic Pain Conference 2022. The Conference is a health practitioner-training conference, developed by leading experts in the field to provide practical management for a wide range of pelvic pain conditions. The conference is exclusive to AHPRA-Registered Health Professionals.
Pelvic pain affects a large number of people, yet there is very little information available to Australia’s health industry on this national issue.
- Pelvic pain is estimated to cost Australia more than $6 billion annually.
- Persistent pelvic pain is estimated to affect 15–25% of women.
- Endometriosis is the most common cause of chronic pelvic pain and has a prevalence rate of around 11% in Australia.
Despite this, pelvic pain is not considered a National Health Priority Area in Australia. The National Pelvic Pain Conference seeks to shine a light on this and provide health industry employees with the resources needed to provide meaningful support to their patients.
