Waitemata Pain Services medical specialists are Fellows of the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (FFPMANZCA). As such they take part in ongoing continuing medical education and updates in pain medicine.They are active in undergraduate teaching and it is hoped that the WPS will become accredited to take Trainees for the FFPMANZCA. Trainees have traditionally come from Anaesthesiology, but as Pain Medicine has developed, and the multidisciplinary approach has been strengthened the Fellowship can be undertaken from Medicine, Psychiatry, Rehabilitation Medicine and Surgical Backgrounds.
Further information on the FFPMANZCA can be obtained from ANZCA.
Medical, Nursing, Physiotherapy or Psychology under or post-graduates should contact the Waitemata Pain Services for further information.
