MasterSessions in 2021 was nothing short of a triumph. We had 1000 engaged participants from over a dozen countries across two live and interactive broadcasts join Lorimer Moseley and some of his best mates for simply the best 3 days of clinically relevant pain science education you could ask for!

Join Lorimer Moseley and his guests for this global Pain MasterSession back by popular demand– a massive 16.5 hours of cutting-edge pain science and clinical application with some of the world’s pain super stars. It’s going to be incredible!


What we know now about persistent pain puts recovery right back on the table.

Pain science and treatment is a fast-moving field. Discoveries from across the fundamental and applied sciences open up new and exciting opportunities for improving outcomes for those at risk of, or challenged by, persisting pain.

We love getting the science to the people who can use it the most – clinicians at the coal face.

This MasterSession will bring discoveries in pain science to life in a clinically applicable way. Contemporary learning principles and techniques will be used to guide participants through how we think, what we think, how we can optimise the impact of educational strategies and how we can use the same techniques to enhance our own discovery, capacity and wellbeing as clinicians.

We think MasterSessions are the biggest and best online pain science education events. Three days of Lorimer Moseley presenting the very latest in clinical pain sciences, pain education and pain treatment. Plus, a huge line up of special guests – world renowned experts in their respective fields presenting their work, and then discussing it live with Lorimer.

Have you ever wished that you could be a fly on the wall as a couple of the planets best thinkers in pain got deep into discussion and debate? Well this is it. These up close and personal ‘couch sessions’ are unscripted and off the cuff, and we’ll bring you right into the action. And to finish it all off, your chance to ask these experts questions and have them answered live. That’s MasterSessions, and that’s why we are confident calling them the biggest and the best!

World leading scientists, pioneering researchers and leaders in pain care. What a line up!
