Living With Vasculitis

Managing Chronic Pain

LogoThe Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) writes guidelines which give advice for healthcare professionals, patients and carers about the best treatments that are available. These guidelines are written by working with healthcare professionals, other NHS staff, patients, carers and members of the public. The guidelines are based on the most up-to-date scientific evidence.

SIGN produced a booklet for patients and carers "Managing Chronic Pain" in December 2013. They have very kindly given Vasculitis UK permission to reproduce this excellent booklet.

The booklet contains information on: What is chronic pain? Those involved in patient care. How pain is assessed. What to do to help yourself. Medication available to manage pain. Physical therapies and other methods to help manage pain. The roles of complementary medicines and diet.
