Team Work and action planning
Team work between you and your healthcare professional is vital. Imagine the Arsenal football team playing without a team plan.
Managing your pain is not a ‘one way street’ and it is unrealistic for your health care professional to totally solve it. You have an important part to play as well.
Together both you and your health care professional can set an action plan. This action plan could help you to both track your progress.
Action planning is taught when you attend self management programme.
