“Pain Management Treatment: On-Line vs In-Person?” – video recording now available!

September 12, 2022

The Kolling Institute hosted a Zoom webinar on September 12 to discuss the ADAPT program outcomes and strategies for future growth.

Developed and implemented by the Pain Management Research Institute’s Professor Michael Nicholas, the ADAPT program now delivers chronic pain management to patients online. One of the most significant outcomes of the ADAPT program during the Covid lockdowns is the engagement of rural and regional patients who are now able to obtain clinical services without the necessity for face-to-face interactions.

Two of the PMRI’s leading clinicians – Senior Clinical Psychologist Dr Sarah Overton and Senior Physiotherapist Maria de Sousa – both of whom work on the ADAPT program with Professor Nicholas – conducted the webinar.
