The Pain Toolkit for people who live with persistent pain

A persistent pain problem can be difficult to understand and manage on an everyday basis. The Pain Toolkit is a simple information booklet that could provide you with some handy tips and skills to support you and your patients along the way to manage persistent pain.

It is meant as a handy guide to help patients to get started.

Pete Moore, who has persistent pain, asthma and osteoarthritis, has put these tools together with the help of friends, family and health care professionals - special acknowledgement to the Bradford pain Rehabilitation Programme team and NHS Kirklees PCT *.

The CHANGE PAIN Initiative has translated this toolkit into several European languages.


Now, the Pain Toolkit is considered as an e-paper.
