Waikato women invited to a free seminar on pain management

Press Release by: Insight Endometriosis


Waikato women are invited to a free seminar on pain management

Pain of varying types is the most common symptom of endometriosis, yet many women are unsure of best practice for managing this disabling symptom.

Hamilton-based community organisation Insight Endometriosis, is hosting a free Pain Management seminar on Wednesday night (from 7pm) to provide up-to date evidence-based information.

At the seminar women will learn about the processes that cause different types of pain, relevant treatment options and complementary therapies.

Educator Annette Evans said “as well as information about pain medications, we take a holistic approach to pain management. We enable women to make informed decisions about treatment options to improve every-day life and long-term wellbeing.”

The seminar is part of a comprehensive education programme which includes free monthly seminars, night classes and individual education appointments.

Insight Endometriosis also offer community support and awareness programmes. “It’s important that women and their families aren’t left facing a significant health problem in isolation”, said Annette.

The seminar will be held on Wednesday 28 August at CCS Disability Action, 17 Claudelands Road, Hamilton. Enquiries please phone Annette 07 8555 123.

About endometriosis:

Endometriosis is a significant and common condition affecting more than 100,000 women and teenage girls in NZ. The most common symptom is period pain, characterised by taking pain relief, bed rest and time off work or studies. Endometriosis can dramatically impair quality of life and is also a leading cause of fertility problems.

About Insight Endometriosis

Our vision is for endometriosis to be widely recognised and understood and for those affected to be empowered and supported. We improve outcomes through community support, education and resources, and reduction of significant diagnostic delays.
