This includes learning how to relax body and mind, the importance of pacing, goal setting, understanding the psychological effects of persistent pain, how to improve confidence to cope with persistent pain. PMPs are usually delivered in a group setting by a multi-disciplinary team of experts.

Individuals take part at their own pace, with set break points throughout the program to ensure pacing.

Each step varies in length, averaging 15-mins, with a recommendation to complete a few steps each week.
