Barbara Walker Centre for Pain Management

Our Philosophy

 

The Barbara Walker Centre for Pain Management (BWCPM) is predominantly an outpatient multidisciplinary services that provides assessment, treatment and consultation for patients with persistent pain. The service comprises specialist pain clinicians working as an integrated team to address the medical, physical and psycho-social factors contributing to the persistence of pain and its consequent disability.

 

Our team believes in applying evidence based practice in the pursuit of best outcomes for our clients.

 

We believe in the St Vincent’s values of Compassion, Justice, Integrity and Excellence and strive to uphold these in the delivery of our service.

 

We are committed to your wellbeing and ask that you return this commitment with respect for our staff, underpinned by the St Vincent’s non-aggression policy.
