Assessment of patient suitability for a pain management programme
Approximately half of people referred for chronic pain management assessment were not offered a pain management programme (PMP) as they were considered still to be seeking treatment, investigations or pain reduction.
Why this matters
Given the high proportion of people considered unsuitable for a PMP, services might be adapted to better prepare people for this option.
