The Pain Management Research Institute (PMRI), a joint initiative between the University of Sydney and Royal North Shore Hospital (and a division of the Kolling Institute of Medical Research), conducts basic and clinical research and professional development for health professionals.
PMRI works closely with the Royal North Shore Hospital’s Pain Management Research Centre for people with pain. Patients Services provide information on programs, procedures, treatments and how to access programs.
Patients Services/Resources include pain management tips, and information about Manage Your Pain, written by the PMRI’s Professor Michael Nicholas et al. About Pain explains many factors – the effect of pain on individuals and the community and types of severe pain – being some. Through About Pain/Patient Stories consumers can use a forum share their experiences with others.
