Northern Beaches GP Clinical Pathway Education Series

Clinical Pathway Pain Management Education Series

The importance of a collaborative approach to chronic pain is vital in improving the lives of the 3.24 million Australians living with this debilitating condition. GPs are at the front line to this endemic with 1 in 5 GP consultations involving patients with chronic pain.

Northern Pain Centre is committed to assisting with the improvement of best-practice chronic pain management. The importance of this has been highlighted in the “The cost of pain in Australia Report” for Painaustralia.

“Based on a previous intervention by NPS MedicineWise, a specialist-designed and led education program for general practitioners (GPs) should result in around a 25% improvement in best-practice chronic pain management by GPs.”
