ESCAPE-pain Online is a free resource produced in the NHS by the Health Innovation Network and Salaso Solution Ltd. It is a web-based version of the ESCAPE-pain app.
ESCAPE-pain Online offers participants an alternative platform from which to access the programme. It complements the well-established face-to-face group programme that is being delivered in hundreds of sites across the United Kingdom.
Professor Mike Hurley, originator of the ESCAPE-pain programme, says “Thanks to ESCAPE-pain Online, anyone with chronic knee or hip pain can benefit from the programme, regardless where they live. We developed it so that more people can access the programme. It will support people to exercise safely and regularly in their own home. It offers a new platform from which to access the programme so is particularly helpful for those that don’t live near a class or who don’t have access to a smart phone.”
