Occupational Therapist & PhD Candidate
Pam has over 30 years’ experience working as a health professional in rehabilitation and pain management. She has been committed to improving Injury Management service delivery with a goal for everyone who participates to come away with minimal pain, distress and disability and having regained control of their life.
To this end Pam has worked on the N.T. Work Health Advisory Board, National Executive of the Australian Rehab Providers Association, participated in development of Pain Australia’s inaugural Pain Strategy, and coordinated a multi-disciplinary team in development of the Abilita Program which provides assessment and coaching resources for biopsychosocial rehabilitation.
Pam is an AHPRA registered Occupational Therapist and is currently completing a PhD at LaTrobe University, evaluating the efficacy of structured biopsychosocial rehabilitation in Injury Management.
Pam co-founded ‘Survive Thrive Strive’ because she believes it fills a critical gap in healthcare because it offers common-sense pain education and proven practical strategies in a manner that will be understood by everyone.
