Airing Pain 35: The Northern Ireland Pain Summit: Pain, policy and employment

The chal­lenges of improv­ing pain man­age­ment in North­ern Ire­land, and rais­ing aware­ness of chron­ic pain among businesses

This pro­gramme was fund­ed by an edu­ca­tion­al grant from Grünenthal.

A spe­cial edi­tion of Air­ing Pain, cov­er­ing the 2012 North­ern Ire­land Pain Sum­mit, organ­ised by the Pain Alliance for North­ern Ire­land. There we inter­viewed rep­re­sen­ta­tives from gov­ern­ment and the vol­un­tary sec­tor, health pro­fes­sion­als, and of course patients.

We hear about the needs of patients and pro­vi­sion of pain ser­vices in North­ern Ire­land from, among oth­ers, Chief Med­ical Offi­cer, Dr Michael McBride, and Dr William Camp­bell, Con­sul­tant in Anaes­the­sia and Pain Med­i­cine at Ulster Hos­pi­tal, Dun­don­ald, Belfast. Patients attend­ing the sum­mit tell us their sto­ries and say what brought them there and Tanya Kennedy, direc­tor of Busi­ness in the Com­mu­ni­ty, sets out her thoughts on how the world of busi­ness can bet­ter take account of chron­ic pain.

Dr Pamela Bell, Chair of the Pain Alliance for North­ern Ire­land, and Kate Fleck, nation­al Direc­tor for Arthri­tis Care in North­ern Ire­land, con­clude with their thoughts on the ‘road map’ for action fol­low­ing on from the pain summit.

Issues cov­ered in this pro­gramme include: Employ­ment, work­place bar­ri­ers, pol­i­cy, rais­ing aware­ness, mis­con­cep­tions, patient expe­ri­ence, health­care fund­ing, arthri­tis, young peo­ple, mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis, acces­si­bil­i­ty, the role of employ­ers, com­mu­ni­ty health­care and exercise.
