"BREAKING THROUGH THE PAIN BARRIER" BOOK ORDER

"BREAKING THROUGH THE PAIN BARRIER" BOOK ORDER

       
A biography on pioneering Australian pain specialist, Professor Michael J. Cousins AO by Gabriella Kelly-Davies.

Synopsis

In 1964 a junior doctor saw two critically burned boys limp into a Sydney hospital begging for help. He saved their lives but struggled to reduce their suffering because few pain treatments existed. That doctor dedicated his life to reducing suffering by improving the treatment of pain.

In a career that spanned 50 years, Dr Michael Cousins led the pain world, and crusaded tirelessly for access to pain management to be viewed as a universal human right. He and his colleagues advanced treatments such as epidural analgesia and spinal cord stimulation that revolutionised pain management.

In 1990, Professor Cousins established the Pain Management Research Institute, a joint initiative of the University of Sydney and the Royal North Shore Hospital.  Pain Foundation Ltd, of which Michael is Patron, was established in 1996 as the fund-raising entity to support the research and education work performed by the Institute.
