Location: Centre for Veterans’ Health, Weymouth Street, London, W1G 6NX
King Edward VII’s Hospital & Supporting Wounded Veterans are now inviting participants for their next Veterans’ Pain Management Programme (PMP). The PMP is designed to help veterans with on-going pain to improve the quality of their lives; it is not based on trying to provide a cure, the overall aims being;
- To improve physical functioning and ability
- To improve the person’s understanding and beliefs about their pain condition
- To reduce pain related distress
- To review and reduce medication with debilitating side effects
- To develop ways to manage increases in pain
If selected, there will be an interdisciplinary assessment followed by a 5-day residential programme in London, plus a further 5 days of compulsory single programme appointments.
King Edward VII’s Hospital will provide the medical treatment for free, whilst, SWV will cover all travel costs, accommodation and meals. Residential accommodation is based on twin-room sharing.
This Programme is suitable for: Veterans suffering from persistent pain, motivated to actively engage in a group-based Pain Management Programme.
Please note, proof of service will be required before forms can be sent to you.
This PMP is a joint initiative between KEVII and SWV. For administrative purposes (proof of service, travel and accommodation), we will need to share your contact details with SWV.
THEY WILL NOT SHARE YOUR MEDICAL INFORMATION.
