Resources for Health Professionals
Pain treatment facilities are unique forms of health care delivery, as they intrinsically recognise that no one health discipline can adequately address the multi-factorial nature of pain, especially chronic pain that occurs in contemporary industrialised society. The staff of pain treatment facilities bring together diverse skills, training and experience to focus on the assessment and rational management of patients with pain. Although it is recognised that there is no necessary consensus regarding diagnostic and therapeutic schemata, the essence of pain treatment facilities is to facilitate interdisciplinary consultation.

Professor Lorimer Moseley, a pain scientist from the University of South Australia and Body in Mind is determined to change the way our medical professionals look at and treat pain - "We need to engage with this massive problem in a new way, give people the resources to recover and find the best methods to prevent persisting pain" - Professor Lorimer Moseley. Professor Moseley and Associates, created the "Pain Revolution" and "The Local Pain Educator (LPE) program - https://www.painrevolution.org/local-pain-educator-program
The LPE program involves:
Raising awareness and offering support to all those affected by CRPS and other Chronic Pain conditions.
There are a number of different programs for both adults, teens and kids. These programs are generally run through pain treatment facilities, but there are also online and after school programs available.
This list contains a number of these programs which also include some to assist with anxiety and depression.
For too long the CRPS and Chronic pain community have lived with the belief that their pain wasn't understood, and their cries for help
were falling upon deaf ears. For as much as this may have been true for some of us, it is not the case for many others and it just keeps
getting better. It is important that you have a medical team that works for you and with you.
Our doctors, specialist, therapists and scientists do care, they do want to help us and they are working to find better outcomes for us. We need to take some positive steps and responsibility for our pain and our care too;
