Queensland Pelvic Pain Network (QPPN) was initially an informal group that began with the commencement of Queensland’s first public Persistent Pelvic Pain Clinic at the Mater Hospital in South Brisbane. Within a short period of time the network has evolved into a much larger group of individuals, all who have a specialist interest in the management of patients with Persistent Pelvic Pain.
Our members are primarily drawn from the SE-Qld region; however it is noted that access for women to high quality care in regional Queensland is difficult. We hope to broaden our membership across Queensland to begin to address this divide.
Reflecting the complexity of pelvic pain, our group which currently has around 65 members comes from a diverse multidisciplinary background including:
• Laparoscopic Gynaecology
• Pain Medicine/Anaesthesia
• Colorectal Surgery
• General Practice
• Emergency Medicine
• Allied health disciplines
– Physiotherapy (including those with subspecialist qualifications in Women’s Health)
– Exercise Physiology
