Dr Irina Hollington – Specialist Pain Medicine Physician
MD FANZCA FFPMANZCA
Dr Irina Hollington obtained her Fellowship in Anaesthesia (FANZCA) in 2013 and then completed her Fellowship in Chronic Pain Medicine (FFPMANZCA). She enjoys the varied practice across both disciplines including perioperative pain optimisation and enhanced recovery.
Her particular focus is on interdisciplinary care – where the patient plays a central role with emphasis on pain education, movement support, mind support, interventional procedures and the evolving evidence-based use of opioids in chronic pain. Her goal is to reduce suffering and to help her patients achieve their goals.
Irina has a passion for learning and teaching medical students and doctors in training, she holds an adjunct position with University of Adelaide (Senior Clinical Lecturer) and she instructs at various courses at the College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA), the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPMANZCA) and the College of Surgeons (FRACS).
