Participants have found Austin Health’s Pain Service helpful in understanding and learning how to live with persistent pain. However, the program’s in-person group format does not always meet individual patients' needs, there can be long wait times, and travelling to the hospital can be difficult.
The Live better! online learning management system will provide an alternative way for patients to access information and resources on how to live with pain day-to-day. Patients will be able to choose between group education or online education and self-management strategies that can be tailored to their individual needs and completed at their own pace.
