Fibromyalgia Australia works to improve research, services and care for Australians living with Fibromyalgia and Complex Pain Syndromes.
Fibromyalgia Australia endorses a holistic, multi-system, integrated management approach to care. This provides a balance of the best of medicine, Medicare care planning including referrals to Allied Health and community management and lifestyle programs.
Fibromyalgia specific education programs empower people to make informed health decisions and work in partnership with their health providers towards prevention, well-being, monitoring and the acquisition of life skills.

We are currently working to establish a best practice, multi-disciplinary clinic to support General Practice, Allied Health and Community Education Providers: and to raise funds for research and validate the latest treatments for Australian setting. Fibromyalgia Australia is committed to up-to-date and accurate FMS information for both providers and consumers.
