Chronic pain versus Persistent pain…

News Release from the Pain Toolkit 

The Pain Toolkit has noticed the proposed NICE Guidelines for pain are going to be called Chronic Pain Guidelines.

The Pain Toolkit was a StakeHolder with this initiative and we asked to be removed from the list.

We do not want to be associated with guidelines that goes against all we been advocating for the past 20plus years. Negative language is not helpful in pain self-management.

Persistent pain is and will always be a much better term. Chronic to many people means…

  • Hopelessness
  • Never-ending
  • Will never get better

Let me know what you think here
