Pain Foundation receives major grant for Pain Training Revolution

TDM GROWTH PARTNERS recently teamed with HEARTS AND MINDS INVESTMENTS LTD to announce their agreement to partner with PAIN FOUNDATION LTD in the consortium led by PMRI’s Professor Michael Nicholas to create a leading-edge online education platform to facilitate the rollout of its pain management training package.  

The end-result will be a national health workforce with access to training in the core skills needed to manage pain patients using PMRI’s intensive multi-disciplinary, cognitive-behavioural treatment program called ADAPT, which helps patients learn ways of taking control of their pain and becoming self-reliant.

ADAPT is very close to TDM’s heart, with Tom, one of the founders of TDM, being a successful graduate from the program.  He describes it as a life changing experience.  TDM’s contribution to the project will focus on funding the specialist eLearning development provider over two years.

This initiative has been endorsed by the Federal Department of Health and Painaustralia.
