Clinical Enablement Service (Scarborough)
Who are we?
The Clinical Enablement Service follows a stepped-care model, empowering patients with pain to self-manage through psycho-education and input from a multi-disciplinary team including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Clinical and Counselling Psychology and Clinical Nurse Specialists.
What do we do?
This service aims to help people who wish to engage in self-management of their persistent/chronic pain. The team offer courses that provide guidance and support to help individuals to self-manage their chronic pain condition. This might involve learning relaxation techniques or how to increase activity levels, or other strategies to help improve quality of life.
At the end of these sessions everyone will be given a plan to continue and improve self-management tailored to their individual needs. We aim to help people develop the confidence to continue their self-management into the future.
The team will also be able to signpost individuals to other support and services within the local community/hospital.
The service is a time-limited pain-management service aimed at empowering individuals to self-manage their chronic pain.
