Dr. Paul Gray is a PhD Student and an Academic/Clinical staff member at the Burns, Trauma and Critical Care Research Centre.
Paul, having attained a Fellowship in Anaesthesia and a Fellowship in Pain Medicine through the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, holds a position of staff specialist at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. This role, as well as the delivery of anaesthesia services, also involves extensive clinical duties within the Multidisciplinary Pain Centre. These duties include inpatient and outpatient care and performing pain medicine interventions on patients with persistent cancer and non-cancer pain. More recently, Paul has enrolled in a PhD in the study of pain following burn injury both in the pre-clinical model and clinical setting. Of particular interest is the mechanism and treatment of neuropathic pain following burn injury. To this end, a randomised controlled trial has begun examining the efficacy of pregabalin in the treatment of acute pain after burn injury. Paul is also Queensland director of the Australian Pain Society and is involved with teaching anaesthesia and pain medicine trainees.
