The pre-clinic education is an important session to help you to understand your persistent pain (chronic pain) experience and provide you with information on what services we can provide to support you.
This PMP is an interdisciplinary group program to help you to optimise your pain experience, guide you with ways to self-manage your persistent pain and to assist you to function adequately
Patients initially attend pre-clinic education sessions prior to medical consultation. These cover the neurophysiology of pain, psychology and pain, a medical perspective on pain management, and active self-management strategies. The information is presented by a pain service Doctor, Physiotherapist, Psychologist, and Occupational Therapist.
Clients must have their own means of transport to attend sessions at Monash Health’s Kingston Centre. We cannot accept TAC and Work Cover clients at this clinic.
There is no cost for consultations. There may be some costs for medication or equipment hire.
