UK parliamentary questions on chronic pain
"Chronic pain management"
On 7 February 2012 Lord Luce tabled two parliamentary questions on chronic pain.
The first question asked, is whether the government is taking steps to incorporate training in chronic pain management in the curricula of all healthcare professionals, following the recommendation in the Chief Medical Officer´s 2008 Annual Report.
The second question is what steps are taken by the government to improve the management of the quality of life of people with long-term conditions, such as chronic pain, through the quality and outcomes framework.
It is expected that these questions will be answered on 21 February 2012. The outcomes will then be published on this website.
