Airing Pain 10: Young People in Pain

Patients and health pro­fes­sion­als at a res­i­den­tial pain man­age­ment pro­gramme in Bath talk about the pain man­age­ment needs of younger peo­ple and the aims of the programme

Paul Evans vis­its the Cen­tre for Pain Ser­vices at the Roy­al Nation­al Hos­pi­tal for Rheumat­ic Dis­eases at Bath to find out about the pain man­age­ment pro­gramme there. Clin­i­cal Direc­tor Dr Lance McCrack­en explains how the pro­gramme helps peo­ple get on with their lives and we meet the patient group to learn about their expe­ri­ences in liv­ing with pain, what brought them to Bath and the things they’ve learned dur­ing their time on the pro­gramme. We also hear about how the team at Bath pro­vide spe­cif­ic ser­vices to younger peo­ple and how pain affects their fam­i­lies and sleep­ing habits.

Issues cov­ered in this pro­gramme include: Young peo­ple, res­i­den­tial pro­grammes, rheumat­ic pain, fam­i­ly, mobil­i­ty, pac­ing, phys­io­ther­a­py, psy­chol­o­gy, school, occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­py, social life, stress, drugs, side effects, hal­lu­ci­na­tion, sup­port for par­ents and sleep pattern.
