Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing and Durham University are hosting a free public lecture to look at primary care and community-based chronic pain self-management.


Chronic Pain is a bio-psycho-social phenomenon that cuts across social, primary care, public health and rehabilitation. Health care professionals realise the need to change how they engage with people with persistent pain, but lack knowledge and confidence in their skills. The speakers contend that chronic and persistent pain cannot be ‘fixed’ or ‘cured’. It needs an understanding of the individual experience and person-centred management, to help people live better lives with it. Drs Paul Chazot and Frances Cole will discuss this new person-centre-approach to pain self-management.
