I was delighted to be asked to write a piece on metaphors and pain by www.pain-ed.com whose work represents the best of evidence-based, patient-centered pain education.  If you haven’t already done so, make sure you check out their website for informative and practical solutions to painful problems.

It’s vital for people with pain to get support from those who know best about it – other people with pain.  Pain-ed’s use of videos to explore patients’ pain experiences provides much needed help and support for those living with pain and for those of us who are attempting to make sense of how best to help others.
