NZ Pain Society 2016 Conference
Thank You!
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the 41st Annual Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Pain Society Inc. held at The Devon Hotel, New Plymouth, Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th April 2016.

By all accounts the conference was a great success. We could not have done it without the support of our sponsors and exhibitors and of course all the delegates who attended.  We had over 200 registrations for the conference, which must be a record for New Plymouth!

Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you in Nelson, 2-4 March 2017.
