mlcoa NSW Updates

August Update:

What is the Story with Chronic Pain?

So how do we deal with pain when it does not go away?

Chronic pain is pain that “lasts beyond the time expected for healing following surgery, trauma or other condition. It can also exist without a clear reason at all. Although chronic pain can be a symptom of other disease, it can also be a disease in its own right, characterised by changes within the central nervous system.”


Join us on 26 September 2018 in Newcastle to learn about pain from an occupational physician’s perspective:

  • What are some new ways of looking at pain?
  • What are treatment goals and options to deal with pain?
  • What is the current theory on how chronic pain works?
  • How is the best way to manage concerns about work and pain?
  • What is the impact of pain on an individual’s occupational future?

Assoc Prof Pooshan Navathe, mlcoa Occupational Physician will be presenting on dealing with chronic pain from 9.00am – 10.30 am on Wednesday 26 September 2018. He has allowed plenty of time to answer your questions and will explore what a good outcome looks like compared to a bad outcome in the management of chronic pain.

Assoc Prof Pooshan Navathe is well respected for his extensive experience and lengthy career as an Occupational Medicine and Aviation Medicine Consultant. He has a breadth of experience in public hospitals, researching and teaching in universities and conducting medico-legal examination across many jurisdictions.  He is certainly one of our most qualified and respected occupational physicians at mlcoa and we are delighted to have him present to you in Newcastle.

Won’t you join us for a pain-free educational session with Dr Navathe?
