Kolling Institute, Neuroscience and Pain Research Showcase Webinar
Painaustralia Board Director, Professor Paul Glare hosted Kolling Institute, Neuroscience and Pain Research Showcase Webinar
On 25 August 2021, Painaustralia attended the Kolling Institute, Neuroscience and Pain Research Showcase.
The webinar covered a range of topics including:
Health and Medical Research Initiatives;
Pharmacology for Older Patients; and
Spinal Cord Injury.
Presentations by the Pain Management Research Institute on preventing disability in the recently injured, and by the John Walsh Centre for Rehabilitation Research on spinal injury, traumatic brain Injury and pain are of particular interest to people living with chronic pain.
In his presentation on disability in the recently injured, Professor Michael Nicholas, Director, Pain Education and Pain Management Programs at the Pain Management Research Institute argued that a multidisciplinary approach to pain management was more effective than relying solely on medication.
A similar approach was presented by the Head of the John Walsh Centre for Rehabilitation Research, Professor Ian Cameron during his presentation on effective ways to treat people with spinal injury, traumatic brain injury and pain.
