Collated online resources

Posted by Kyle Beacham (Admin) Oct 13, 2020 Posted in Pain Management

Collated online resources for people living with pain and the clinicians who support them.

What happened?

  • Who was involved?

The Physiotherapy Pain Association (PPA) Committee.

  • How did you change?

Chronic pain is a complex, biopsychosocial long term condition. Physiotherapists often use supplementary materials to aid patients' understanding and facilitate behaviour change. In the initial stages of the response to COVID-19, the committee recognised the need to collate links to helpful online resources.  As some services were closed, we knew some patients would benefit from other types of support.  The services that remained open began supporting people via telehealth or online and we understood that the need for reliable online supplementary material would be greater than ever before. The links were collated by physiotherapists in pain management and a patient representative. These were then uploaded to a designated area on the PPA website.

 What challenges did you face?

  • There are a plethora of online resources and it was a challenge to select some over others. 
  • Previously, this would have been a member benefit, but the PPA were keen to make this freely available to all clinicians and their patients. 

What successes occurred?

  • The landing page received 500 unique page views per month April - June and continues to attract 100-200 unique page views per month. 
  • The 'Keeping Active' link was included in the British Pain Society and Scottish Government guidance on managing Chronic Pain during the COVID 19 pandemic.
