Dr Karen Joseph
Specialist in Sexual & Reproductive Health and Obstetrics & Gynaecology, and Pain Medicine, Pain Management Centre, Burwood Hospital and Christchurch Women’s Hospital, Christchurch, NZ
Over the last decade of my clinical training, and three vocational training programs, in addition to a wide range of knowledge and experience, I have also developed frustration with the current lack of services available which I am striving to improve. I a member of the Ministry of Health Endometriosis Taskforce working group, and undertaking research on sociopsychobiological interventions for pelvic pain.
At Burwood Pain Management Centre I work within a supportive interdisciplinary team, however I recognise that the majority of the care patients receive is in the community and so am delighted to provide a workshop to support GPs in this challenge.
