Key points

- Chronic-pain conditions may not be adequately managed by medications alone.
- Chronic-pain states are driven by well-understood neurophysiological mechanisms and are not ‘psychosomatic’.
- Patient behaviours and coping styles will determine the functioning and quality of life, more significantly than pain intensity.
- Pain-management programmes help individuals to focus on functioning and quality of life through self management, and to broaden the agenda away from pain control alone.
- Multidisciplinary input is essential; doctors can help by effective preparation of the patient and timely referral, and by avoiding re-medicalization.
