Dr Ivan Lin is a NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow at the Western Australian Centre for Rural Health, University of Western Australia, physiotherapist with the Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service, and holds an adjunct appointment with Curtin University, School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science. He lives and works on Yamatji country, in Geraldton, Western Australia. Over the past 10 years a major focus of Dr Lin’s research and clinical practice has been guided by the question; how can outcomes be improved for Aboriginal people with musculoskeletal pain? His work has drawn together a collaboration of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal researchers, clinicians and community members on this issue. Currently the group are in the early stages of an implementation project aiming to improve the quality of musculoskeletal pain care in primary care and emergency care settings. Dr Lin’s other interests include remote and rural health, research translation, health disparities and communication in clinical settings.
Dr Lin will speak on “His stoic indifference to pain” and Other Myths: Musculoskeletal Pain in Aboriginal Australians.
