Revamped ESCAPE-pain resource for leisure and community providers
We have revamped our Leisure Sector FAQ resource to incorporate learnings from ESCAPE-pain leisure and community sites, including 4x case-studies.
If you are a leisure provider/operator interested in learning more about ESCAPE-pain and how to implement the programme in your organisation please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy.
ESCAPE-pain is highlighted in the updated NHS England clinical guidance (pages 15-18) on knee arthroscopy for patients with osteoarthritis in their Evidence-Based Interventions: Guidance for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) published in November 2018 and updated in January 2019. The guidance states that exercise programmes like ESCAPE-pain are more effective treatments for patients with osteoarthritis than arthroscopic knee washouts.
Please see below a selection of resources we have designed to support clinical commissioning groups who might want to consider integrating ESCAPE-pain into their MSK contracts.
