Cost of Gout Research Study
A research project being conducted by the UNSW in collaboration with Prof Ric Day from Dept of Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney. This research project will gather data about the cost of chronic gout in households across Australia.
If you know of anyone living in Australia who has had gout, apart from those who visit your practice, they are also eligible for this study. The survey is currently accessible via www.costofgout.com

The Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) Review Taskforce’s Clinical Committees have released a further six clinical committee reports for public consultation. Reports of interest to rheumatologists are Diagnostic Imaging – knee imaging and Spinal Surgery. The online survey is available here and will be open until Friday 21 July.
Painaustralia will shortly be commencing strategic planning to guide the future priorities and activities of the organisation. As part of this process, we are very keen to hear from our members and key supporters. We want to know your views on the organisation and its future. Painaustralia’s CEO, Carol Bennett, will be interviewing a selective sample of members, organisations with an interest in Painaustralia’s work and board members in the next few weeks. A brief online survey has also been developed to ensure all members and interested groups can have their views heard. We are hoping you will take a few moments to fill in the online survey and give us your thoughts on how we can best strengthen Painaustralia for the future.

Thank you for your interest in Painaustralia and for taking the time to consider this invitation to contribute to our forward planning proces.
