Australian Pain Management Research Review

RCAA is partnering with the Rehabilitation Research Review in Australia to provide allied health practitioners, including Rehabilitation Counsellors, up to date research summaries to support their evidence based practice. Each issue of the Australian Pain Management Research Review features peer reviewed articles from global pain management journals with independent commentary by Dr Tim Ho, who is a rehabilitation and pain specialist at Inner West Pain Centre. Tim also works in work capacity centre and addiction medicine.

His interests are chronic musculoskeletal pain, neuropathic pain, visceral pain and headache. His research interests are management of comorbid chronic pain and addiction, return-to-work programmes, osseointegration and nursing home resident pain management. The Review cover topics such as cardiac rehabilitation, stroke rehabilitation, pulmonary rehabilitation, respiratory rehabilitation, brain injury, cancer, geriatrics and orthopaedics.
