Art of Pain: Morphine and Mindfulness - same room, different windows?
With Professor Mark Hutchinson, Dr Tim Semple, Georgie Davidson and Dr George Khut - Facilitated by Professor Lorimer Moseley
Professor Mark Hutchinson is a world authority on the interactions that opioids have with our brain (nervous system) and "other brain" (central immune system). Mark will explain how these drugs can be so helpful but also problematic and how the opioids we make in our very own ‘drug cabinet in the brain’ might be similar to, and different from, those we can take in a pill or injection.
Dr Tim Semple from the RAH will provide a ‘prescriber’s’ perspective. Tim is a Pain Medicine Specialist and Deputy Head of the RAH Pain Unit. Tim will discuss the use of opioids and mindfulness from his perspective running a public hospital pain clinic. Georgie will discuss the use of mindfulness in the real world, both as part of clinical practice and as a way of life.
