About this series

Persistent pain affects one in five children and young people during their development, and can be associated with significant distress and disability. Recovery and effective self-management is possible for most patients and families with a multi-factored approach, and it is less disruptive and more sustainable when this can be done in the patient and families’ local community.

Our Paediatric Persistent Pain series is targeted towards General Paediatricians and their teams, particularly those working in regional and rural areas, and also to General Practitioners and other interested providers.  Participants will learn to perform assessments and deliver evidence based therapy for children and young people with persistent pain and their families.

We welcome interested participants to join us from diverse professional backgrounds including primary care, from across Australia and internationally.

GPs may apply for Category 1 CPD points, accredited by RACGP/ACRRM. Conditions apply. Medicare rebates are also available for GP case presentations.

What our participants have to say

“Participating in ECHO® is like having a friendly weekly check-in with an expert panel to round out your complex consultations. The value to my patients in providing a well-rounded opinion to them after presenting their child’s complex presentation to the ECHO® panel is amazing. It has opened up my mind to the possibilities of multidisciplinary case conferences where I previously thought them an impossible dream for general practice.”

“It has been wonderful to get actual multidisciplinary teaching on this very common condition! One of the things that has really struck me is the amount allied health can really contribute to the management of ADHD. This includes not just dietitians, OTs and psychologists but also social workers and school guidance counsellors. Not only have I learnt a lot about ADHD, I have also learnt so much about holistic patient care.”
Dr Melita Cullen MBBS BSc(Hons) RACGP DCH, Majellan Medical Centre
