Greater Manchester Pain Management Workshop: Knowledge & Skills, No Pills
Following on from the success of the pain management techniques and the benefits of reducing harm from opioids workshop we are now offering another Greater Manchester Pain Management Workshop.
More than half a million people in England are prescribed opioid analgesia for longer than 3 months, the majority having chronic pain that is not associated with cancer. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance states that opioids should not be offered to manage chronic non-cancer pain as harm out-weighs the benefit.
This second workshop focuses on the wider resources and services available to help clinicians to support individuals living with chronic pain. This virtual workshop for health and care professionals offers the chance to come together, learn, share experiences, challenges, and best practice.
