RESOURCES

For copies of past minutes and annual reports, please contact Kirsty O'Connor, Senior Events Officer on +61 8 517 5332.

Acute pain services require a significant number of core forms which require updating. In an attempt to reduce the time acute pain services requires for this, the SIG is posting specimen forms supplied by members. These may be copied, trialled and adapted to local requirements. PCA forms, general forms and epidural forms

If you have forms you wish to offer, please send these to the SIG. If there are forms your service requires that are not posted here, please discuss these requirements.
