Managing Pain - Skills Not Pills
These presentations have been created to help clinicians know treatment options in Somerset for patients with chronic pain (pain of more than 3 months). Ultimately we know that medicines don’t work well for such pain so other strategies are most useful.
The last presentation is 3 interviews of people who have helped others, or been helped, to reduce medication moving to ‘skills not pills’. The presentations have been put together following work between Somerset Community Pain Management Service (SCPMS), Somerset CCG Medicines Management Team, Somerset Drug and Alcohol Service (SDAS), Somerset IAPT and Somerset Training Hub.
