Ten Footsteps towards supporting your patients to live well with pain is a new online resource – developed by Live Well with Pain – to help you in your work with patients.
The resource is divided into ten sections, or ‘footsteps.’ This reflects the fact that, as a clinician, you will be going on a journey with your patient as they first come to terms with, and then learn the skills of, self-managing their pain.
Each of the ten footsteps covers a discrete self-management theme. Each is recognised by clinicians working with chronic pain to be a vital component in the ‘toolkit’ of people who have learnt to manage their pain effectively.
Ten Footsteps is full of useful advice on how to develop your patient’s self-management skills as well as downloadable resources for you to share with them. There are also links to more detailed information to support you in your own learning.
