ESCAPE-pain is a rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain, that integrates educational self-management and coping strategies with an exercise regimen individualised for each participant. It helps people understand their condition, teaches them simple things they can help themselves with, and takes them through a progressive exercise programme so they learn how to cope with pain better.
Robust evaluation shows that ESCAPE-pain:
- Reduces pain
- Improves physical function
- Improves the psychosocial consequences of pain
- Reduces healthcare and utilisation costs.

ESCAPE-pain is a rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain that integrates educational self-management and coping strategies with an exercise regimen. It helps people understand their condition, teaches them simple things they can help themselves with, and then takes them through a progressive exercise programme so they learn how to cope with pain better.
ESCAPE-pain can be delivered by physiotherapists, exercise instructors or other health professionals in a wide range of settings including hospital outpatients departments and leisure/community spaces.
The programme is increasingly being adopted by NHS physiotherapy departments and in the leisure/community sector, and sanctioned by NICE, NHS Innovation Accelerator, Royal Society of Public Health and British Society of Rheumatology amongst others.
We are looking to recruit sessional trainers who will join the team at the Health Innovation Network to co-deliver the ESCAPE-pain training course (1 day face to face training) to clinicians and exercise instructors who will then go on to implement the ESCAPE-pain programme in their locality.
The trainers will be expected to travel to the training venue, assist with set up prior to the course start and be available at the end of the day to answer any remaining questions from participants.
- 5 years post-graduate experience and/or equivalent vocational training
- At least 2 years' experience of delivering exercise to clients with musculoskeletal conditions
- Training qualifications and/or attended a train the trainer course
- Experience in delivering training to professional groups
- Good understanding of behaviour change and motivational interviewing
- Experience of delivering facilitated learning
