  1. Louise lives with pain and was one of our trainers. Her story is inspirational. It will inspire you to view pain management in a different way. Louise told us she wished her clinicians had consistently told her right from the start that the medications aren’t the long term solution. On average we need to repeat the message 7 times before it starts to impact.
  2. The pain cycle is a really helpful tool to go through with patients. It’s also a great tool for us to to help us manage pain. It’s worth thinking: where is the patient in the cycle and how can we best support them (often through social prescribing, shared lived experience and talking therapies)?
  3. When initiating opioid meds (and consider for other analgesics also), remember to give short scripts of no more than 7 days and aim not to put on repeat. Longer prescriptions lead to higher risk of long term use with all of the pitfalls. As teams, consistency in prescribing is really important to help set expectations and guide people along the best route for them.
  1. What is long covid?
  2. How are patients presenting with the condition?
  3. Post-covid assessment services
  4. How can non-clinical teams support with long covid?
  5. Managing patient expectations
