Following his award winning performance in “Understanding Pain and What to do about it in less than five minutes” Brainman is back in two new films.

A team from Hunter Integrated Pain Service (HIPS), University of South Australia, University of Washington and Hunter Medicare Local (Hunter ML) have convinced Brainman to reprise his role and star in two follow-up pain videos.

Despite people loving his 2011 performance , feedback from primary care providers was consistently “make it shorter”. These two updated videos are less than 2 ½ minutes in duration. The first “Brainman stops his opioids” holds the succinct message that opioids are no longer recommended for chronic non-cancer pain.

The second video shows the choices Brainman makes as he transitions toward an active evidence based approach.
