The UKCPA Pain Management Group aims to improve the understanding of the core principles of managing pain in clinical practice



Pain is an area which crosses all specialities and sectors within pharmacy and the Pain Management Group aims to improve the understanding of the core principles of managing pain in clinical practice as well as providing a forum for more specialist discussion.

The Pain Management Group committee members work with various associations, societies, charities and groups in order to share their expertise to improve the care of patients.

Some committee members of the Pain Management Group are Royal Pharmaceutical Society spokespersons for pain management and assessors for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Faculty.

Committee member Professor Roger Knaggs is Secretary of the British Pain Society Council, the first pharmacist to take this position.
