That’s a Wrap: What’s the Story with Chronic Pain?
mlcoa Occupational Physician, Professor Pooshan Navathe presented on the topic “What’s the Story with Chronic Pain?” on Wednesday 26 September in Newcastle to a very engaged audience. Professor Navathe told many stories using anecdotal evidence which he was able to relate back to research revealing his exceptional knowledge of the subject.
Two stories were told in parallel to illustrate the different approaches and paths that chronic pain can take. Professor Navathe reiterated towards the end of the talk that evidence supports early intervention with a focus on active management, education and consistent messages between providers.
The event was summed up by one attendee saying ‘awesome knowledge, a very good perspective on today’s treatment’.
