For people living with persistent pain, a new approach is currently being offered by the Gold Coast Primary Health Network Pain Program to make a significant difference to the lives of those suffering from pain.
The ‘Turning Pain into Gain Program' aims 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 in the hope of leading to reduced reliance on medication for pain management, reduced requirements for emergency care and participants not requiring referral to higher level care at hospital.
Gold Coast Primary Health Network's Persistent Pain Program: “Turning PAIN into GAIN” is a monthly program for six months as well as service assessments along the way to a total of 12 months of support and additional allied health service access.
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.
Members of the public living with persistent pain can also contact Joyce directly or fill out the online form below for more information about the program.
