Our themes this year will be Total Pain Management and The Mythologies of Illness.  Over the day we will explore multiple approaches to pain management, including complementary and experimental interventions.  We'll also challenge some of the mythologies about who gets ill and why, including the shame, blame and stigma that often accompanies a serious diagnosis.
