Empowered Relief

We are pleased to have been able to now extend our free pain workshops for people living in Lincolnshire, following a successful pilot in 2023.

These workshops are part of Lincolnshire’s NHS work to provide alternatives to medications for people living with chronic non-cancer pain.

There is substantial evidence that non-pharmacological support for non-cancer chronic pain is safer and often more effective for managing symptoms and should be explored as a first step before prescribing.

Empowered Relief™ is an evidence-based, 2-hour virtual workshop on pain that rapidly equips people with the skills to effectively manage their pain. The session covers:

  • How pain is processed in the brain and how to best manage it
  • Simple skills that people can use everyday
  • Creating a personalised plan for long-term relief

Workshops take place periodically throughout the year. The sessions are virtual and take place over Microsoft Teams. Patients can attend either workshop, which will be delivered by Dr Graham Dunthorne a Specialist Pain Management GP in the county, from the comfort of their own home.

The next date for Empowered Relief is 17th May 2024, from 10am to 12pm. Please follow this link to register:
