Evaluating pain interventions

The biopsychosocial nature of the experience of living and coping with a chronic pain problem means that there are a multitude of possible outcomes that are important to consider when assessing pain management intervention. Furthermore, there are a myriad of possible outcomes measures that vary in delivery, domain and indeed quality. The above factors often lead to difficulty in determining what outcomes to use, how to use them and how to report findings to colleagues and stakeholders. The aim of this workshop is to provide a guide on how to navigate some of the challenges above in assessing interventions aimed at supporting people to live life with chronic pain.

This workshop will cover topics including:

What is the purpose of assessment?
How to identify a good v bad questionnaire
Selecting among outcome scales
Domains of assessment: pain, mood, disability, QoL, healthcare use
Simple scales – VAS, Likert
Clinical significance/cut-offs
Presenting data/findings to stakeholders: patients, clinicians, commissioners, research audiences.

The workshop will be run by Dr Amanda Williams and Dr Steven Coen (psychology), Diarmuid Denneny (physiotherapy). Enquires should be directed to Amanda Williams (Amanda.williams@ucl.ac.uk).

Venue:
Pain Management Centre at 25 Cleveland Street (UCLH), Fitzrovia, London, W1t 4AJ
