Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain: A Population Health Management Approach

16 May 2024
Therapy Programme

People with chronic musculoskeletal pain, including fibromyalgia need personalised care – an approach offering patients choice and control over their mental and physical health, basing care on what matters to them personally, and focusing on individual strengths and needs.

This session describes a population health model offering people with chronic pain personalised support in primary care, with MDT support for the primary-care team from specialists including Rheumatology, Physiotherapy and Health Psychology.

Learning outcomes:

  • Be able to explain the core principles of population health management for people with chronic pain.
  • Be able to list the priorities of people with chronic pain and the services they may choose when offered personalised care.
  • Be able to describe how to deliver a PCN-based model of care for people with chronic pain can work, supported by a specialist MDT.
