Persistent pain resources

This resource pack provides healthcare professionals with signposting and access to appropriate, relevant and up-to-date information on the non-pharmacological and pharmacological management of persistent (chronic) non-malignant pain in non-specialist settings.

These resources have been updated to capture the MHRA drug safety updates published in September 2020: Fentanyl patches for non-cancer pain: do not use in opioid-naive patients and Opioids: risk of dependence and addiction.
