The program helps individuals improve the self-management of persistent pain and reduce the impact of arthritis on daily life. A multi-disciplinary expert team teach participants a new approach to arthritis pain, empowering self-management for an improved quality of life with pain no longer in control. The program is a standalone intervention or works in conjunction with existing treatments to help reduce the need for pain medication and face-to-face appointments.
The objective of the program is for participants to improve their health questionnaire scores for Anxiety (GAD-7), Depression (PHQ-9) and Musculoskeletal Health (MSK-HQ). This is achieved through the practice of pain self-management methods, exercise, lifestyle changes and cognitive approaches learnt throughout the program.
