Lorimer is Bradley Distinguished Professor, Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and Foundation Chair in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia. He has over 30 years of clinical experience working with people in persistent pain, has authored hundreds of articles, multiple books and chapters and continues to present keynote lectures globally. His community outreach and community education initiatives are internationally renowned. His work is cited in clinical guidelines internationally. He is an honoured member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, an Honorary Fellow of the ANZCA Faculty of Pain Medicine and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences. In 2020, he was made an Officer of the Order of Australia, Australia’s second highest civilian honour, for ‘distinguished service to humanity at large in the fields of pain and its management, science communication, education and physiotherapy.

Previous event participant testimonials:

This is the meaty stuff I come to conferences for, pain science is hard to understand and hearing it in detail from Lorimer really cements my confidence and gives me the extra grit to answer those really tough questions that pop up over time. I also can’t get enough of Lorimer’s obvious passion for his work, his humility and patience with explaining pain over and over again. He leads by example – modelling the patience and nurturing all of the tiny pain knowledge trees out there.

Considering the complexities in these topics, they could have been so dry but Lorimer’s unique and entertaining style help so much with staying engaged.

I appreciated Lorimer’s passion and ability to conceptualise neuroscience in such an accessible way. I appreciated his descriptions and passion about the magnitude of the problem of chronic pain management.

Note: The schedule is subject to minor changes.

To make the experience even more enriching, why not attend with a colleague? A ‘study buddy’ can keep you motivated and accountable (and halve the coffee runs). It could also make networking easier and less intimidating, potentially resulting in more connections than you would make on your own. Then, back in the office, you can debate your takeaways and hold each other accountable for implementing the promising ideas generated during the event! Tickets will be limited, so if you are keen to attend, please don’t hesitate.
