He has written several patient/health care professional-led pain self-management programmes, including:

- Self-management for long-term health conditions (illustrated)
Pete authored a simple booklet for people with pain called the Pain Toolkit which was supported by the Department of Health and now used extensively in the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Since 2009 245,000 copies have been printed and in circulation throughout the UK and download from the website 350,000 times.
They have been translated into Austrian, Arabic, Dutch, French, Norwegian, German, Gujarati, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.
Presenting & coaching
Pete regularly speaks to health care professionals and patient groups here in the UK and Europe about pain self-management and is a regular presenter at the EFIC Pain School (Austria).
He works part time as part of the Patient Advisory Team for the University College London, Imperial College and Leicester University which are conducting research on the role of movements in persistent pain called Emotion & Pain. The study is taking advantage from recent technological developments in the field of computer gaming and aims at record people’s movements using special sensors.
