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.
