Somerset Community Pain Management Service (SCPMS) have recently created some excellent short videos
As we know, chronic/persistent pain is extremely common, occurring in up to 1/3 of UK adults. The causes of pain are complex, requiring a biopsychosocial model – a whole person approach – and “skills not pills”. To help patients and clinicians manage pain better, Somerset Community Pain Management Service (SCPMS) have recently created some excellent short videos on their website on
The videos are between 5-15mins. Although the videos focus on pain management, the information is also relevant to other long term conditions. The team have also added a patient story of living well with pain called “Christine’s story”. Do check out these resources as a learning tool for you/your team and also as a resource to signpost patients to.
