Reduce pain related disability

What is the Persistent Pain Program?
The Persistent Pain Program at EPA is an evidence-based treatment program aimed at preventing and reducing disability associated with chronic pain.

There are two components:
  1. PPEP – Persistent Pain Education Program
  2. PGAP – Progressive Goal Attainment Program
Target risk factors for chronic pain
Validated screening tools are used to identify patients who have psychosocial risk factors associated with chronic pain.

Identifying psychosocial risk factors:
  • Excessive focus on pain
  • Fear of participating in activities that might increase pain
  • Sense of unfairness about pain
  • Inappropriate thoughts and beliefs about pain and disability
