For the first time in Victoria, clients will be able to access a specialised chronic pain program within community health. In turn, clients will be able to receive the expertise and support they need to manage their pain sooner.
Over the next two years, cohealth is delivering the Chronic Pain Management Program in partnership with St Vincent`s Hospital Barbara Walker Centre for Pain Management.
The new program brings expertise out of the hospital and into the community. Clients can receive support at a place they’re familiar with, which means they will hopefully get better results.
The first program commenced virtually in November, and as COVID-19 restrictions ease, the program will be delivered in person to groups, with each program running for four weeks.
