SAVE THE DATE - Annual ESCAPE-pain Conference
We are pleased to announce the annual ESCAPE-pain Conference will be held on Wednesday, 12th December 2018. Please save the date!
The programme and registration details will be published in due course.
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.
