The University of Cape Town
invites you to an inaugural lecture
by Professor Romy Parker
Topic: Pain Management to Reduce Suffering in South Africa - integrating interdisciplinary research into the healthcare professions.
The primary driver for people to seek help from a healthcare professional is pain. Yet, limited time is spent in undergraduate curricula teaching on pain, its complex physiology and on its evidence-based management. Professor Parker invites you to join her on a reflective journey, exploring this phenomenon we all experience – pain; and asks: What is pain and how does it affect us? What have we learnt about pain in South Africa? How do we ensure that every South African has access to a healthcare professional who understands pain?
