Changing the Way We Think About Pain

  • : Sydney, NSW, 2000

Do your patients suffer from persistent pain?

In Australia, it is estimated that around 1 in 5 adults report current chronic pain. Neuropathic pain in particular can be difficult to treat. It has been reported that patients with neuropathic pain have a tendency to suffer and function more poorly when compared to those with chronic nociceptive pain. Neuropathic pain is also associated with impaired quality of life and is often poorly managed. Neuropathic pain management outcomes often are unsatisfactory, partly because the contribution of neuropathy to pain presenting in primary care may be unrecognised.

Learn to recognize and effectively treat mixed pain presentations in this 3-hour seminar from physicians from Melbourne’s Metro Pain Group and Sydney's Women's Health and Research Institute of Australia, leaders in pain management. Understand the latest conservative and interventional treatment strategies, and the referral processes to give your patients the best chance of recovery.

Learning outcomes

  • Assessing a patient with chronic pain to establish if they have any red flag conditions
  • Outlining the key differential diagnosis of persistent neuropathic and nociceptive pain
  • Evaluating a number of conservative and interventional strategies to manage persistent pain
  • Implementing a referral process for patients with ongoing pain that require additional investigation and referral to a pain clinic.
