Having worked in pain management over the past decade, I observed again and again the mismanagement of persistent pain. Long waitlists, arduous referral processes, expensive treatments and travel to and from clinics to access care.
The social injustice motivated me to commence a personal project providing a suite of occupation-based strategies to reduce the impact of persistent pain.
The beatpain app was developed and created primarily by an Occupational Therapist, Angela Hawkes. Included throughout the development process was a team of contributors who are experts in the field – psychology, nursing, health promotion, physiotherapy and consumers. The content is based on current research and best practice. i.e. The strategies actually work!
So join the fight against pain. Start your recovery today.
