Pain Medicine

\r\n Pain medicine is the bio psychosocial assessment and management of persons with complex pain, especially when an underlying condition is not directly treatable. The scope of pain medicine supplements that of other medical disciplines, and utilises interdisciplinary skills to promote improved quality-of-life through improved physical, psychological and social function. The pain medicine specialist serves both as a consultant to other physicians and often as the principal treating physician. The spectrum of care provided by a pain specialist includes prescribing medication, co-ordinating rehabilitative services, performing pain relieving procedures, counselling patients and families, directing a multidisciplinary team, co-operating with other healthcare professionals and liaising with public and private agencies.
