Projects and activities

Currently the Chronic Pain HIT is:

  1. Improving communication between healthcare professionals and people with chronic pain by providing best practice conversation videos for healthcare professionals.
  2. Applying knowledge learned from recent Equality, Diversity and Inclusion training to better support people with chronic pain who may not currently be accessing services.
  3. Promoting patient-informed research and evidence-based practice among chronic pain researchers and healthcare professionals through regular webinars: watch Autumn 2022 or Spring 2022
  4. Continuing to contribute to service/pathway improvements that will lead to an integrated community-based pain service.

Completed HIT projects

Conversations About Pain project: The following videos have been provided to help healthcare professionals in the assessment and management of chronic pain, in the context of palliative and end of life care. While these videos specifically relate to patients at end of life, we have had independent verification that they have wider relevance in supporting all patients experiencing chronic pain.
