Neuropathic pain (NeuP) is very prevalent in patients with long-term conditions. It rarely exists alone and can be detected by some simple screening measures. Early recognition of NeuP, for example painful diabetic neuropathy and post-stroke pain, by nurses can lead to earlier treatment and improve the patient’s quality of life. Delegates will learn about the incidence, aetiology, screening tools and management strategies for NeuP and have increased vigilance when assessing pain to detect the signs and symptoms associated with NeuP.
