Pain Con­cern Research Work­shop — sup­port­ing peo­ple with chron­ic pain devel­op self man­age­ment approaches

14/12/2016 at 01:00pm

Pain Con­cern invite you to join them for an after­noon work­shop explor­ing new ways to sup­port peo­ple with chron­ic pain devel­op approach­es to improved self management.

Pain Con­cern have recent­ly received fund­ing to under­take a pilot research project of a ‘nav­i­ga­tor tool’ which could be used a by a num­ber of pri­ma­ry health­care pro­fes­sion­als dur­ing their con­sul­ta­tion with peo­ple with chron­ic pain.

This is a two year project which will test the tool at var­i­ous pri­ma­ry care sites. How­ev­er, pri­or to the pilot study Pain Con­cern intend to hold a con­sul­ta­tion event where they present the nav­i­ga­tor tool in it’s draft form and get feed­back from both pri­ma­ry health­care pro­fes­sion­als (a mix­ture of GPs, phys­io­ther­a­pists, prac­tice nurs­es and phar­ma­cists) and peo­ple liv­ing with chron­ic pain.

This work­shop will involve try­ing the new nav­i­ga­tor tool with­in sev­er­al small groups and report­ing back to the wider team. Refresh­ments and a light lunch will be pro­vid­ed at the beginning.

Places are free but lim­it­ed. To book your space please con­tact

Hi Dana,

Thanks for get­ting in touch. This work­shop was a pilot for a new scheme, but our Pain Edu­ca­tion Ses­sions are still ongo­ing and you can book into one free of charge by call­ing us on 0300 323 9966, or tex­ting us on 07548 229 958 with your name and num­ber and we’ll call you back. Alter­na­tive­ly you can email:
The ses­sions are locat­ed across Glas­gow in Alexan­dria, Clyde­bank, East­er­house, Pol­lok­shields and Pos­sil­park and are led by an expe­ri­enced train­er who has chron­ic pain them­selves. Each lasts about 2 hours (with a break in the mid­dle) and is aimed at help­ing peo­ple under­stand and man­age their pain bet­ter, as well as feel more able day-to-day.
For more infor­ma­tion please check out our web­site ( or give us a call on the num­ber above and we’ll do our best to help.

Thanks and kind regards,

Good Day. I have start­ed a sup­port group for peo­ple suf­fer­ing with chron­ic pain, can­cer and or dis­abil­i­ties in Est­court, Kawa Zulu Natal, South Africa. I would appre­ci­ate if you could assist me with any infor­ma­tion to this respect. My sup­port group is free to all and their spouse, part­ner or care­giv­er. My mis­sion is to Sup­port through the Pow­er of Love and my Vis­sion is to live a bet­ter life know­ing that you are not alone.

I would real­ly appro­pri­ate any sup­port that you can offer me help peo­ple live a bet­ter life. I want peo­ple to know that they don’t just live but they can also have a life.

God Bless

Any plans for a future (this year — 2018) workshop?
