Renowned as one of the top small conferences in the pain science community, this isn’t just an event – it’s a cool, exclusive club that anyone passionate about pain science can join. EP3 is a 3-day weekend of mind-blowing pain science, epic talks, wholesome ideas and a side of fun and laughter. Headlining 2025 will be three of the most influential names in pain science: Professor Lorimer Moseley AO, Associate Professor Tasha Stanton and Associate Professor David Butler, supported by a series of highly influential speakers discussing the most recent research impacting healthcare.

EP3 2025 is expected to be another sold-out success, attracting around 200 healthcare practitioners from Australia and around the globe. This three-day event focuses on the latest in pain science, helping clinicians implement the latest in cognitive, neuro, behavioural, and social science into real-world treatment for those with chronic pain.

Previous events have attracted a diverse audience of multidisciplinary health professionals, consisting mainly of physiotherapists but with a healthy proportion of occupational therapists, psychologists, doctors, nurses, rehab therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, and others. Engagement has always been very enthusiastic, demonstrating the growing interest and success in advancing pain science knowledge.

Feedback from previous EP3 attendees:

“It was simply brilliant. I have never been on the edge of my seat for 3 whole days not wanting it to end.”

“Thank you soooooo much for putting on one of my most enjoyable conferences.”

“Thank you for putting on such a great course. It is amazing what you have all put together”

“It is a conference that all health practitioners should attend”

“I felt I leapt forward with knowledge, empathy and direction for improvement. Thank you to everyone.”

“The organisation and behind the scenes work was impressive as the course ran so smoothly”

“Thank you for a great three days. It was honestly the best PD course I have ever attended. Thank you for all the work you do trying to improve the lives of people living with chronic pain”


EP3 2025 is open to all professionals working with people experiencing acute and chronic pain, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, doctors, psychologists, nurses, chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapists and others. A strength of the Explain Pain course is that participants come from many professions, so please come with an open mind. Pre-reading Explain Pain Second Edition print / ePub  or even Explain Pain Supercharged book would also be ideal.

Course Times

Registration Friday: 7.30-8.30am
Friday: 8.30 am – 5.00pm
Saturday: 8.30 am – 5.00pm
Sunday: 8.30 am – 5.00pm


The course will be a blend of lectures, interaction and practical workshops. There will be ample time to mix with the presenters throughout the three days.

What is the difference between a regular Explain Pain course and an EP3?

The Explain Pain course and the EP3 seminar are very different educational opportunities. Explain Pain is our standard course covering the core pain biology, curriculum setting and story telling. EP3 is about what three of the most influential people in pain treatment are thinking and doing NOW – so every EP3 is unique.

I’ve been to an EP3 before – shall I come again?

YES! There will be lots of completely new original material, new science (and new jokes).
