Lesley Brydon talks to Seniors Newspaper
CHRONIC pain is a major health issue for Australia, but few among the broader population and more importantly, among the medical profession, are aware of this issue.
Painaustralia chief executive officer Lesley Brydon is talking tough about the urgent need to promote early intervention and prevention of chronic pain at the primary care and community level.
"It's highly stigmatised, highly miss-understood and poorly treated," she said.
Ms Brydon said the medical profession's ability to help older Australians deal with pain was being hampered by a lack of education and training in its management.
