Local Pain Educator (LPE) Program Scholarships

The Department of Health is collaborating with the University of South Australia and HR+ Tasmania to roll out the Local Pain Educator (LPE) Program (developed by Professor Lorimer Moseley) across Tasmania. The program includes the Professional Certificate in Pain Science through the University of South Australia, mentorship and a LPE community of practice.

Funding for scholarships (up to $9,500 per person) is available for GPs, physiotherapists, nurses and other clinicians who regularly provide care to people with pain.

Applications will close on 12 October, 2018.
