PainSense is a whole system approach to supporting self-management of pain – putting the patient at the heart of the journey to a better quality of life. It has three interlocking components – for commissioners, practitioners and for people living with persistent pain…
Pathway refocusing – helping commissioners to create the conditions for change
PainSense starts from the recognition that people can learn to self manage their persistent pain and become active partners in their own care. PainSense can support your organisation to refocus its local clinical care pathway around this central principle, creating the conditions for positive change to occur.
Clinician e-learning – supporting practitioners to support their patients
PainSense e-learning packages for clinicians ensure adoption of the service across clinical services. This frees up GPs’ and other healthcare professionals’ time by developing their confidence and skills to guide patients towards effective self-management of their pain.
The apps – for people living with persistent pain
At the heart of the PainSense service, engaging and easy-to-use digital apps give patients the knowledge, skills and resources they need to manage persistent pain, so they become more independent, and able to live happier, healthier, fulfilling lives.
