Pac­ing is the thing that makes the most dif­fer­ence to his patients’ lives, says David Laird, Con­sul­tant in Anaes­the­sia and Pain Man­age­ment in Coun­ty Durham.

In our Q&A ses­sion, spe­cial­ist nurse Ruth Day answers your ques­tions on painkillers.

Issues cov­ered in this pro­gramme include: Arthri­tis, pac­ing, mis­con­cep­tions, painkillers, back pain, edu­cat­ing health pro­fes­sion­als, parac­eta­mol, codeine, TENS, flare-up, side effects, osteoarthri­tis, rheuma­toid arthri­tis, joint pain, pain ser­vice cuts, pol­i­cy and economics.
