The programaims to help persistent pain sufferers become better managers of their pain through the expert education program, individual case management, support, goal setting and improved use of community healthcare services.
The program is designed so that participants can explore a range of different strategies for living well despite pain, in the hope of leading to reduced reliance on medication for pain management, reduced requirements for emergency care and living a better quality of life.
A large number of local general practices and the rheumatology, persistent pain and neurosurgery departments at Gold Coast Hospital have already enrolled some of their patients into this program. General practices interested in referring their patients into the program should contact the Project Officer, Joyce McSwan via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
