Guides for patients


Pain impacts every aspect of a patient’s life. In fact, it can be so debilitating that the patient sometimes feels like there is nothing that he or she can do to improve the situation. But is that right?


CHANGE PAIN aims to support healthcare professionals with practical tools, so that they can help patients to improve and better manage their pain. However, patients could also take an active role in pain management.


Together with their healthcare professional, patients can take steps towards making a CHANGE in their pain management. By becoming proactive, communicating with, and partnering with their physician, patients could increase chances for improving both their emotional and physical condition. This is why CHANGE PAIN has developed guides for patients where you can find advice about steps patients can take to alleviate their pain. Here, you can download these guides.


CHANGE PAIN continuously strives to create new practical tools that can support healthcare professionals and patients in managing chronic pain. Please visit us regularly to find the latest information.
