What is the Residential Pain & Fatigue Programme?
The Residential Pain & Fatigue Management Programme helps people with a long-term pain or fatigue problem to manage their symptoms so that they can achieve what they want to in life despite the condition. People still have their underlying conditions at the end of their time on the programme but the condition is affecting their life less allowing them to focus on returning to, or staying in, work and spending quality time with their family.
Participants spend two weeks taking part in an intensive programme which looks at helping people be more physically active, more confident in their ability to live the life they want to and feel more positive about the future.
The residential programme is suitable for people with a wide range of conditions including; fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, myalgic encephalopathy, post-viral fatigue syndrome (including post-covid syndrome) , complex regional pain syndrome and myofacial pain syndrome. The programme incorporates cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy, graded exercise, activity management and mindfulness.
In order to attend the programme you need to have had a consultation with a clinical member of the Pain and Fatigue Management Service and attended some of our short courses first.
