Airing Pain - radio programmes
Since September 2010 the 30 minute long radio programme 'Airing Pain' has been broadcast by APMA's British counterpart Pain Concern.
The programmes are broadcast on the internet, then made available as podcasts and CDs.
They remain available to listeners as a ready support system. Every listener will find some support, some inspiration, and some practical help that will ease their lives.
This magazine style programme looks at a wide range of topics including:
- How you can live with pain
- The impact of pain on our relationships
- Special groups such as the elderly and children
- Different conditions and treatment options
It works like an APMA pain support group, packed with information and support - only you don't have to leave your home! Listen to Airing Pain.
"Let us remind ourselves... of the Chinese doctrine of recruiting the patient as a member of his own treatment team, so that patients and therapists become comrades in the best sense of the word, with its connotations of shared respect and responsibility... We shall never abolish pain... What we can overcome is a hopeless, helpless imprisonment within immutable pain."
