New guidance: Practical Pain Management in Specialist Care

Published: 23/02/2022

The Faculty has launched a document looking at the complexities of balancing population based guidance and personal care: Practical Pain Management in Specialist Care: How to help people with chronic pain when population based national guidance fails to help. It considers the value and limitations of a conventional population-determined evidence based medicine approach in delivering care for an individual with pain, steering a path towards more pragmatic patient-centred care to best meet health-care needs.

This edition looks at the broad picture and it is planned to have further editions looking at more specific areas of practice.
