Pain and relationships – the forgotten aspect of working with persistent pain
Our Spring newsletter is published as we reach the end of a year in which people’s lives and relationships have been put under pressure as never before.
The pandemic has affected everyone, and none more so than those living with long term conditions such as persistent pain.
That’s why the main focus of this edition is pain and relationships.
This central aspect of people’s experience is often overlooked in working with people living with pain. So we have commissioned articles from those with lived experience of pain, their carers, and from clinicians. They discuss everything from intimacy and pain, to pain and the workplace, and even the nature of the clinician-patient relationship itself.
Their honest and sometimes surprising insights make for fascinating reading – and may offer new perspectives to guide your own practice in simple and useful ways.
