Dr Hogg supervises a co-ordinated range of services, linking the acute and interventional pain services at the Royal Melbourne Hospital City Campus with the persistent pain services at their Royal Park Campus. In addition, he supports the development of educational and clinical links with outer urban and regional services in the north western region of Victoria, through telehealth, clinical attachments and visiting lectures. Therapies offered include assessment and early treatments for those with acute pain at risk of persistent pain, interventional procedures for cancer and non-cancer pain, and allied health based pain management programs.
Dr Hogg is the immediate past president of the Australian Pain Society, and is leading the Waiting in Pain project, a systematic investigation into the provision of persistent pain services in Australia. Research activity has included investigations into the pharmacokinetics of Paracetamol and the development of persistent pain following trauma.
