Members of the Pain Service attended the four-day British Pain Society Annual Scientific Meeting in Bournemouth in April with four poster presentations accepted for submission.

Members who attended were Dr Ian Goodall (Service Lead), Dr Carsten Bantel (Lead Acute Pain Consultant), Dr Glyn Towlerton (Pain Consultant), Dr Helen Laycock, Dr Ruth Cowen, Dr Ben Thomas, Stephen Ward (Lead Clinical Nurse Specialist) and Charlotte Halmshaw (Associate Clinical Nurse Specialist).

The poster titles were:

  1. But how do you feel about morphine doctor?
  2. Quality of Life improvements after spinal cord stimulator insertion for chronic pain
  3. A follow-up pilot study looking at pain management after discharge, following major surgery
  4. Examining the effects of peri-operative pain management on pain at first waking in the recovery room

One of our posters, Examining the effects of perioperative management on pain at first waking in the recovery room, won first prize in the Acute Pain poster category.

The win is a recognition that their research topics are of interest to others and are valuable in the area of pain research.

The team are already transferring their findings from two of the audits into clinical practice to help facilitate the process of acute pain management for the nurse-led Discharge Project.
