About this event

Introduction from Pete

Most people with persistent pain struggle to manage it. I know how they feel, because I also struggled back in the early 1990's.

It wasn't until I got mayself on a pain management programme in 1996, where I learn't some basic and simple life-long skills to self-manage my pain, myself.

I still use those skills today and why since 1997, I havent had the need to take any pain medication. I teach this same simple skills on the workshop.

How the workshops work

  • The workshops are online 2.5 hours long..but could run on longer
  • Workshops will only have between 6-8 people, so there is time for people to be interactive with Pete and each other.

Organiser Pete Moore

Organiser of Pain Toolkit workshop For people with long-term persisting pain

So, who is Pete Moore and how did he get started with pain self management?

Pete Moore Biography 

Pete’s story is very typical of that of a pain patient. He was, like many pain patients looking for that magic bullet to take away his pain. Managing pain was like playing a game of snakes and ladders – a game of luck.  Most days melted into the next and he became a very poor pain self-manager. He did not exercise or generally look after his body and when something went wrong with it, he expected the doctor to fix him. 

My Turning Point!

In July 1996 Pete attended the INPUT Pain Management Programme ( PMP) London. It was described to him as a programme that could help me to increase his confidence and mobility and provide him with life-long skills to self-manage his pain.  

Pain Toolkit www.paintoolkit.org

Pete authored the Pain Toolkit a simple patient booklet, which was supported by the Department of Health and now used extensively in the UK and overseas. 950,000 copies are in circulation in the UK. It’s been translated into 18 languages and adapted for America, Australia, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand.
