What is the content of a PMP?

The course is informal and consists of talks and discussions on the following areas:

  • Persistent pain and its effect on life
  • Goal setting and pacing
  • Stress management and relaxation
  • Managing activity, mood, and sleep patterns
  • Understanding how pain affects relationships
  • Using medication effectively
  • Communication
  • Planning ahead
  • Maintaining change
  • Graded exercise
  • Managing flare-ups

You will be asked to try things out in group sessions, and at home, to help you to develop new pain management skills. You will be given handouts as a reminder of what the programme included.

Rydym yn croesawu gohebiaeth a galwadau ffôn yn y Gymraeg neu'r Saesneg. Atebir gohebiaeth Gymraeg yn y Gymraeg, ac ni fydd hyn yn arwain at oedi. Mae’r dudalen hon ar gael yn Gymraeg drwy bwyso’r botwm ar y dde ar frig y dudalen.

We welcome correspondence and telephone calls in Welsh or English. Welsh language correspondence will be replied to in Welsh, and this will not lead to a delay. This page is available in Welsh by clicking ‘Cymraeg’ at the top right of this page.
