Teamwork on non-drug pain management

Clinical Pain

Dr David Lim and Dr Matthew Green on why GPs and the pain team need to “sing from the same song sheet”.


  • Acute pain becomes chronic pain somewhere between the three and six month mark
  • There are good online assessment tools that will help GPs and are highly informative for patients
  • It is essential the pain team and GP “sing from the same song sheet”, the focus being on quality of life and degree of function
