Stanford’s Facial Pain Program – Whole Person Pain Care: Latest research and scalable treatments for pain and opioid reduction

Here at TNA Australia we link with International Organisations who deal with Trigeminal Neuralgia and other Facial Pain conditions

We have registered to be provided with information about Webinars and Research from many of these providers.  One of the unexpected wonderful outcomes of the COVID pandemic is the way many International and National Organisations have pivoted and now provide access to presentations and webinars over the web.  It is sensational to be able to be in an audience listening to skilled professionals on a wide array of subject, while sitting at home.

Why not get a few people together to view the presentation and have a chat about what you have learnt, share a coffee and cake together and workshop how you can utilise the advise in your lives

If you get a few friends and family together, take a photo and send it to members@tnaaustralia.org.au and we will publish here.

Our new website is our portal to our members and people looking for information – we add content regularly on subjects we feel may be of interest.  We are not sponsored by any other organisation and we do not endorse the content – it is provide to assist you to make decisions for your individual circumstances
