UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THIS MEETING HAS HAD TO BE POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
“The Difficult Consultation”
Chronic pain affects around 20% of population and about 7% describes it as intense and severely disabling, needing frequent healthcare advice. Royal College of General Practitioners estimate that people with chronic pain consult their GP 5 times more frequently than those without, and one of the presenting problems in 22% of consultations. Needless to say unmitigated chronic pain can be a frequent cause of frustration for both the patient and clinician. I would like to share my experience as a pain management consultant, exploring the clinical and non-clinical factors leading to a “difficult consultation” and management strategies, through a series of case based discussions.
