Today’s guests are Pete Goble and Rich Flanagan. Pete is a retired nurse and currently a Buddhist Health Care Chaplain. Rich is an Operating Department Practitioner, working in the NHS, specialising in anaesthetics and post-operative recovery. They’re both members of the Middle Way Society and they are here to talk today about how people perceive pain, the assumptions we make about it, how it’s influenced culturally, psychic and physical pain, attitudes and trends in dealing with pain and how this might all relate to the Middle Way.
The book Pete recommended is Pain edited by Frederick Toates and the three links that Rich mentioned are What is Pain on the British Pain Society Website, the NHS Pain Tool kit and Ways to Manage your Persistent Pain
