We are pleased to announce the release of issue 7, our chronic pain management issue.

This issue leads with a summary of the‘It’s a pain’ Public Engagement Lecture Series - aimed at improving the understanding of persistent pain. The key organisers Joanna Quinlan, Dr David Laird and Dr Paul L Chazot summarise chronic pain management for both patients and healthcare professionals regarding the current understanding of pain, treatments and services available.

Professor Pat Schofield, Director of the Centre for Positive Ageing, University of Greenwich, discusses a recent study Engaging with Older People and their Carers to Develop and Deliver Interventions for the Self-Management of Chronic Pain (EOPIC). This concept covers a range of techniques including relaxation, coping strategies, exercise, adaptations to activities and education about pain and resulted in production of pain self-management leaflets.

Professor Barbara Jack, Head of Research and Director of the Evidence-based Research Centre Edge Hill University, discusses the development of the Carers Alert Thermometer (CAT), a short screening instrument that aims to provide an alert to potential areas of burden that carers are experiencing.
