We're proud to partner with health services both large and small who enable chronic pain patients to learn to manage their condition better with the online course.
Pathway Through Pain is an online pain management programme (PMP) that's given to patients in various healthcare settings across the UK, from GP Surgeries and Pain Clinics to IAPT and Community Health Services. Thousands of people have completed the course and learned to effectively self-manage chronic pain in their daily lives.
How we support Health Services
Pathway through Pain is offered and given to patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain in primary and secondary care settings.
As the course guides participants through all the elements of the intensive Pain Management Programme (PMP) as defined by the National Institute of Health & Care Excellence (NICE), it can be offered to patients as an intervention for chronic musculoskeletal pain. Where a PMP is considered an appropriate intervention, the Pathway through Pain course can be offered.
Due to the flexibility of the course and its management Portal, the course fits easily into the Health Service’s established way of working, to quickly and effectively help support the clinical team and Service as a whole. The course works in conjunction with a patient's already existing treatment pathway, as well as a standalone intervention, depending on the healthcare referral setting.
Using the portal, the clinical team can enrol patients onto the course, monitor their progress & see their self-assessment scores, view analytical reports on health outcomes & engagement, and collate participant satisfaction ratings & testimonials, to simply manage all aspects of course facilitation, as well as easily measure success and effectiveness.
Offering an online PMP is particularly useful where access to real-world PMPs are limited or where patients are restricted to mobility, the environment or time constraints, making it difficult to attend face-to-face sessions or appointments.
Results & Evidence
Pathway through Pain is improving patient outcomes and reducing healthcare costs for a leading NHS pain service.
"Pathway through Pain is now integral to our pain service. It improves the quality of life of the patients we serve - and its improved my quality of life no end; I don’t tell patient after patient the same thing time and again in my clinic - the course does it for me!"
