The New Zealand Pain Society is pleased to invite you to register for NZPS 2019 Conference from the 7 - 10 March 2019 at Rydges Latimer Hotel, Christchurch, NZ.

Pain is an issue that presents across settings, disciplines, and can impact all aspects of a patient’s life. This makes the opportunity to gather and discuss how we understand and treat pain so important. On the eve of a new decade, both those who experience pain and those who treat it are confronted with an ever growing body of information about how best to approach pain management. We hope this conference will be an opportunity to take stock of the knowledge that has shaped pain management in 2019, the information that patients must wade through to make decisions about their own pain experience, and the future directions for pain management.

REGISTER NOW for the Paedicatrics Day to see Dr Maureen Mooney at NZPS


Maureen, a clinical psychologist trained in New Zealand and France, has 18 years experience in humanitarian psychosocial programming and disaster response. In her 2011 sabbatical year, she became a research
officer in the Joint Centre for Disaster Research (JCDR), Massey University and member of an academic advisory group on psychosocial recovery following the Canterbury Earthquakes. Her ensuing doctorate
focused on what factors fostered positive coping in the recovery of children and youth following these earthquakes. Her interest is in how children, within their families and communities, cope effectively with
adversity, and how we can promote contexts where children and families thrive.
