Replicated and delivered ESCAPE-pain programme online and virtually.

by Michael Hurley | 6 months ago | in Pain Management
Horizon 1

ESCAPE-pain is a rehabilitation programme for people with knee, hip and/or back pain. People undertake a 6-week integrated programme of education and exercise. It is usually delivered in face-to-face format, but we also developed an app and online programme that was cited for expansion in the NHS Long Term Plan.

During the past 3 months we have made our electronic resources available on our website, worked with clinical departments and the leisure sector to replicate and deliver the programme virtually.

The online programme has been very popular with the online programme "hits" increasing by 360% during the COVID19 period, which was converted into 50% increased in the online programme registrants.

We are also working with departments to see how the virtual programme is being delivered, what is required to make it practicable, how it is received by patients and if it is effective. 

What is needed to sustain the change?

We are continuing to work with providers to see if the app, online and virtual programmes are safe and acceptable to patients, deliverable by providers, effective in reducing pain and improving function and quality of life, and its effect on healthcare utilisation.

Would it be possible to do this as an online live delivery e.g. to a group over zoom? Seems a shame to lose the group and peer support bit that is such an important part of Escape.

That's one of the things we're hoping to look at Sue, because it's one of the aspects of ESCAPE-pain that make it successful.
