Online self management training programme for primary care clinicians and matching programme for people with pain

by Frances COLE | 5 months ago | in Pain Management
Horizon 2

Patients with chronic pain no longer have face to face rehabilitation and pain symptom management. There is therefore a need to increase their access to gaining accurate knowledge in understanding pain and its management by the brain, grow their confidence to live well with pain through acquisition of skills, access to resources that give tools and learning support to boost health, well being and independence. This is needed in multiple settings and with people with diverse needs and backgrounds

What is needed to sustain the change?

On line systematic approach to provide accessible wide range of resources to clinicians in primary and community care and their patients that enable them to access to pain self-management through their own choosing from a range of knowledge, skills, tools and support to implement behaviour changes to grow confidence, compassion and resilience. Two online resources to be boosted that already exist www.livewellwithpain.co.uk/tenfootsteps  and www.my.livewellwithpain.co.uk  to run weekly virtual e-selfmanagement  cafe type events using both patient advocates and clinicians, social prescribing.

Secondly regular "painfest" events where for a single week each month a " festival of health and well being" for people with pain and their carers can enter and discover multidimensional range of knowledge and skills and diverse resources available through many options from mindfulness tent to " TedX pain management talks, to yoga and tai Chi, music and pain, carers and their needs, crafting away pain etc. Assess outcome on self efficacy /confidence to cope despite the pain, patient activation and own goals achieved.

I am a huge supporter of Francis Cole & the Live Well With Pain website, the film of my experience with opioids appears on the website & I write a blog on the patient facing site, there are fantastic free resources on this site for patients & importantly clinicians to download and use to help patients, so I am a little biased but the I believe The Ten Footsteps For People Living with Pain is an invaluable self help tool! The virtual pain festival is something I am involved in creating along with a a wide group of patient advocates & a very MDT group of clinicians from across the whole UK & including contributions from America & Canada! As a team we want to co-produce Something that will have lasting benefits for people living with pain! If the festival is as successful as we believe it will be, we would like to make it regular and leave something behind after each event! I believe this deserves your support!
