Welcome message:

The President, Executive and Scientific Committee of the Neuromodulation Society of Australia and New Zealand welcomes you to the 11th Annual Scientific Meeting, to be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from Saturday 12 - Sunday 13 March 2016.  The theme for this meeting is Neuromodulation: Mainstream Medicine, this meeting continues to explore the diversifying science and therapeutic applications of neuromdulation in pain and other applications.

We are very pleased to be hosting an exciting and enticing group of international and local invited speakers and expect this to be our best meeting yet. We will hear from our esteemed guest speakers about landmark research including recent pivotal studies from the US that are evolving the quality of evidence in this space.

In addition to the usual high quality plenary lectures we will be holding special interest sessions for pain trainees and novice implanters, a nursing and allied health breakout session and a focus session on sacral stimulation. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

It may also be appropriate to add references to cited literature here. References will be included in the word limit. Authors are advised to keep references to a minimum, and to use an abbreviated referencing system, i.e. First author et al., no title, year of publication, abbreviated journal title, volume, pages. 


In this section information on participants (and /or subjects) should be provided. This may include the number of participants, demographic information such as age and gender as well as the method of recruitment. (ie a random sample or a convenient sample). Study inclusion and exclusion criteria should be included in this section as well as a sample size calculation if presenting a randomised clinical trial. Measures and procedures used in the study are described in this section. Descriptions of analyses appear in the methods section.

Reference to potential results that were unavailable at the time that the abstract was submitted will not be acceptable. Submitted abstracts must include actual results. Data from additional recruitment or updated analyses after abstract submission can be reported in the poster or oral presentation. Results should be expressed as means or medians and the spread of the results indicated as ranges, standard deviations or 95% confidence intervals as appropriate. Probability values must be included, but are not sufficient of themselves without descriptive statistics (means, etc).


In this section you should provide statements of interpretation and implication of findings, as well as comparison with previous literature. It should not be a simple restatement of the results.

There are some cases where this format requires modification, although authors should try as best as possible to adapt their abstract to fit within these 4 headings.

Some abstracts will need to be amended and you may be contacted by the Reviewer to discuss these changes. It is the intention of the Committee to use the amendment process to assist authors to improve their abstract writing skills. The NSANZ ASM is an opportunity for new researchers to present their findings, and the Committee is eager to assist in the development of researchers investigating neuromodulation.

All presenters must register for the conference by the Early Bird Registration Deadline - Friday 29 Jannuary 2016, or the poster will be withdrawn from the program.
