It is our view at Southern Cross Pain Clinic that access to medicines that alleviate suffering is a human right and a medical responsibility. We believe that patients suffering chronic pain should have equitable access to medications that are legal and have been appropriately prescribed by a medical doctor as part of the overall care of the patient.
Southern Cross Pain Clinic evolved from a recognised need to provide consolidated care to eligible patients using medicines that treat chronic pain and other conditions.
Our clinic integrates specialist care, access, and information within the primary health setting, thus enabling patients to receive treatment for a variety of conditions whilst having any other general health concern met. This approach also created an opportunity for Southern Cross Pain Clinic to partner with tertiary institutions in research projects designed to examine:
- how pain medications can be titrated to improve quality of life
- the experience of certain patient demographics accessing medications, and
- the attitudes of prescribing doctors towards pain medications
