The Local Pain Educator (LPE) program is a community-based health promotion initiative with a focus on local capacity building. The aim of the program is to raise awareness of pain neurobiology and application of pain education to a biopsychosocial pain model of care. Applications are currently open for Tasmanian Health Professionals to apply for the LPE.

Tasmanian health professionals may also be eligible for a scholarship under the Health Workforce Scholarship Program (HWSP), which will cover the cost of the LPE course. For information regarding eligibility for the HWSP, click here.
