PAS-SAP – My Pain Survey – for support and partnership
Person-centred Care builds on patient engagement and partnership between healthcare professionals and the patient, and often the patient's relatives, too. The patient's narrative, combined with the results of clinical tests, forms the basis for care planning. Patients who live with chronic pain require multi-modal therapy that combines, for example, medication, psychological support and physiotherapy. Actively encouraging the patient to become a partner in their care is essential to ensure their care needs are met. Self-monitoring plays an important role in the partnership. The PAS-SAP project aims to bring together patients and professionals to co-creatively develop and test a digital and/or analogue tool that facilitates person-centred care communication between patients living with chronic pain and healthcare professionals.
