Airing Pain 32: Pain Management Programmes

What is a pain man­age­ment pro­gramme? We find out more with the patients and staff on the Glas­gow programme

This pro­gramme was fund­ed by Pain Concern’s sup­port­ers and friends.

Air­ing Pain sheds some light on pain man­age­ment pro­grammes: what they are, and how they can help. Paul Evans pays a vis­it to the Glas­gow Pain Man­age­ment Pro­gramme where he talks to health pro­fes­sion­als and patients.

The programme’s clin­i­cal lead, con­sul­tant clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist Mar­tin Dun­bar, explains how his team help patients rebuild their lives despite con­tin­u­ing to expe­ri­ence pain. We hear patients on the pro­gramme speak about how they have ben­e­fit­ed from shar­ing their expe­ri­ences and bet­ter under­stand­ing their pain and Lyn Wat­son, the programme’s spe­cial­ist nurse, talks about how she helps patients to man­age their med­ica­tions and get the most out of med­ical appointments.

Issues cov­ered in this pro­gramme include: Patient expe­ri­ence, res­i­den­tial pro­gramme, mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary, neck and shoul­der pain, anx­i­ety, peer sup­port, med­ica­tion, drugs, man­ag­ing appoint­ments, fibromyal­gia, depres­sion, mind­ful­ness and relationships.
