Enabling patients to self-manage their pain using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

In partnership with ADI Health, the PainSense app uses e-learning to help patients gain knowledge, guidance and skills to self-manage.

The app combines The Pain Toolkit and The Pain Management Plan, two highly effective resources with an international reputation for building self-management skills.

Data inputted into the app is fed into GP systems as a PDF, enabling care teams access to relevant patient information.
