Pain Concern is a charity providing information and support to people with pain and those who care for them, whether family, friends or healthcare professionals. Their Airing Pain radio programme, available online and on CD, features the experiences of those managing their everyday pain and interviews with top, internationally-recognised experts. Their magazine Pain Matters, available in digital and print editions, contains news, features and comment on topics including self-management techniques, research into pain treatments and personal experiences of living with pain. Readers have told us they find it both informative and empowering. They run a Helpline staffed by trained volunteers, providing information, support or just a listening ear to people wanting to talk about their own pain or that of a family member or friend. A free information pack on how to manage pain is available. The Pain Concern online community on HealthUnlocked provides its members with a forum to share experiences. Their Pain Education Classes are currently available at various locations across Glasgow. The 2-hour session will give you a better understanding of your pain to help you manage your condition more effectively and are suitable for anyone who has had pain for more than 12 weeks. Pain Concern conducts research providing insight into the state of pain management services and the experiences of people in pain. This contributes to their policy and campaigning work to raise awareness about pain and improve service provision.
