Live Well with Pain is a free resource, developed by clinicians who have given their time and expertise freely to support best practice in pain self management.

Maintaining and developing the website takes time and money. If everyone who finds it useful helps to support it, the future for Live Well with Pain will be secure.

Donating only takes a moment, and even a small amount will help ensure Live Well with Pain continues to develop as a valued, free source of knowledge, skills and tools by and for clinicians working with persistent pain.
