MATERIALS: ACCESS TO YOUTUBE FOR FILMS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPpu7dXJFRI - „Struggling to be me with chronic pain‟ - the experience of adults with chronic musculoskeletal pain https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=477yTJPg10o - „Struggling to Support People to Live a Valued Life with Chronic Pain‟ - healthcare professionals' experience of treating adults with chronic non-malignant pain. 1. Watch one (or both) of the films. 2. Consider, discuss and make notes on the following: What are the main themes of the film? How did it make you feel? Any surprises? How the film resonates with your experience? Describe the impact of the film on you? How could you use what you have learnt to improve healthcare for people in pain? 3. Discuss your ideas in a group. TEACHING NOTES Students can either watch the film before the session or during the session, depending on time available. Ask them to write down something about each question. Leave plenty of time for discussion in groups. Alternatively, you could ask students to write a piece of work that explores these questions.
