“Moving from ‘Painkillers’ to Pain Management – improving chronic pain management in Primary Care”
Presentation by Dr. Kieran Dinwoodie, a GP from Lanarkshire who works as a partner and trainer and is the National GP Advisor for chronic pain working with the Centre for Sustainable Delivery, NHS Scotland.
Kieran will talk about his own practice’s move from ‘painkillers’ to pain management by treating it as a long-term condition with a whole practice approach.
We hope to make this interactive so you are welcome to bring cases to discuss and Kieran is happy to share case studies from his own practice.

Background & Learning Outcomes:
Chronic pain is a challenging area and is often unsatisfying for both patients and clinicians. This evening session will give a brief overview of recent guidelines on chronic pain and share learning from GP practices across Scotland on effective ways to manage it. This requires education, support and an MDT approach. We will share resources that can help GPs and other clinicians to have better conversations which result in increased patient quality of life and improved job satisfaction.
