How we support pain services
Pathway through Pain is a digital Pain Management Programme (PMP) that is provided to patients in primary and secondary care settings and achieves outstanding health outcomes and patient satisfaction. The course is delivered to patients at varying points in their care pathway, to provide the most benefit to the patient and the Health Service, e.g. at the point of referral to an NHS Pain Service, to lower the treatment waiting time for the patient, and reduce the work burden on the clinical team.
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 is offered to health service users as an intervention for chronic musculoskeletal pain. Where a PMP is considered an appropriate intervention, the Pathway through Pain course can be offered.
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.
Due to the flexibility of the course and its management system for facilitation, monitoring & reporting, 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. Offering a digital 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.
Using our web-baes course management system, the clinical team can enrol service users onto the course and see reporting on their engagement with the course and the health outcomes of course completers for, Health State (EQ-VAS), Depression (PHQ-9), Anxiety (GAD-7) and Disability (ODI).
Evaluated for its effectiveness and backed-up by research, with Pathway through Pain you can confidently provide a high quality and effective intervention for persistent musculoskeletal pain, at low cost with minimum disruption to the work of your clinical team.
