Persistent Non Malignant Pain Service
Our understanding of persistent pain, the research on it, and intervention for it has changed hugely over the last 15 years.
We now have a greater understanding of ‘Central Sensitisation’ and the benefits of a psychosocial approach to assisting people with maximising their functioning and quality of life despite their pain.
Whilst the Service delivers a psychosocial model of intervention, the GP with Special Interest may suggest some medication adjustments or provide guidance on how to assist your patient with reducing their medication.
What your client/patient can expect from the Service:
- Education on persistent pain;
- Support with achieving goals despite the pain;
- Help to reduce emotional distress;
- Support to promote self-management;
- Support to reduce reliance on medication and health professionals.
