Community Pain Service scoop £10,000 award

Health professionals working in Southport have scooped a prestigious £10,000 award.

The Grünenthal Pain Awards, which took place in Bournemouth, aim to recognise innovation and excellence in the field of pain management.

The Community Pain Service at Ainsdale Centre for Health and Well-being won first prize with their project “I-Gro: growing pain patients’ strengths, expertise and wellbeing through a therapeutic tool and solution-focussed interactive smartphone and tablet application”.

Once developed, the app will be piloted within the service’s pain management programme to help patients set personalised, self-management goals and review their progress.

Dr Chris Barker, Clinical Director for the service, said: “We are really proud to win this award. It will enable us to build on our achievements in the pain service by creating a tablet/smartphone app which helps develop quality of life for chronic pain sufferers.

“We’ve already been working hard on this in our pain management programme, and now having the opportunity to translate this work into an electronic format to reach many more people is very exciting.”
