ACC Interventional Pain Management Workshop, Wellington, 28 November 2017

ACCs Interventional Pain Management (IPM) service workshop

We're working to improve how we support our clients access to Interventional Pain Management services both in and outside of a Pain Management Services multidisciplinary team. Our aim is to provide a better experience for all our key stakeholders; our clients, providers and ACC staff.

Over the last 18 months we've been working hard to better understand current procedures, pathways and assess international evidence and we are now focusing on what needs to be improved. A number of themes have emerged over the last few months:

  • IPM procedures are often delivered in isolation from other pain rehabilitation services.
  • The pathway for clients to access IPM services is overly complex and can result in a poor client experience.
  • The quicker a clients pain needs are identified and managed the better, but there are challenges in ensuring effective

rehabilitation (particularly when interventional procedures are recommended).

  • As a result of these emerging themes, we're looking for ways to work with and support the health sectors providing more

effective pain management services and cross sector alignment.

We're holding a workshop in November 2017 and we would really value your input to explore the potential opportunities.

Help shape the future of Interventional Pain Management

We want to work in partnership with you to improve the IPM experience for everyone. This workshop is an opportunity to share experiences, expertise, ideas and be part of discussions that will help shape the design of new pathways to accessing interventional pain management procedures and services for our clients.

Workshop information

We'll start the session by providing some background information and setting our goals for the day. To get the most out of the workshop we'll break into groups. We'll ask you to explore the challenges and opportunities in more detail and then we'll look to apply these to design a best practice pathway for IPM. This will inform specific elements of the service updates required to support service delivery. After the workshop, your feedback will be collated and shared with participants and others who have expressed interest to be kept in the loop.

What do I need to do?

Register your interest in attending our workshop by emailing us at Painmanagement@acc.co.nz with IPM WORKSHOP in the subject line.

Send us your name, company, email address and any dietary requirements. We will confirm your registration with a meeting invite closer to the time.

Please note:

Registration closes 27 October 2017

  • Limit the number of attendees per organisation/group to two. If you require more people to attend please contact us to discuss further.
