This course is for any practitioner working with people with persistent pain.

Do you try to help patients with long term pain but struggle to know how to best support them with this complex condition? There is a drive to reduce the amount medications we prescribe but what are the alternatives?

The Live Well with Pain Team will deliver Ten Footsteps training in self-management for chronic pain as an online course co-delivered by a range of clinicians and patients with lived experience of pain.

The audience can be a varied range from both specialist and primary/community health services, so includes social prescribers, health coaches, care coordinators, nurses, physiotherapists (especially if prescribe), GP’s and any other relevant group that work with people with persistent pain.

The programme consists of 10 hours training over 8 -12 weeks in three sessions, as follows:

  • 2 x four hour sessions focused on 10 Footsteps programme of self-management
  • 1 x two and 1/2 hour follow up session that will focus on the use of the Live Well with Pain Assessment tool use to enable patients to share their needs and issues due to the impact of pain on their health and wellbeing www.livewellwithpain.co.uk
