Meet Pete Moore, author of the Pain Toolkit
Pete attended the INPUT Pain Management Programme (PMP) London in 1996 and where he feels his journey back to being a person again began.
Since 1997, he hasn’t had the need to take any pain medication.
Pete developed the Pain Toolkit in 2001, with the help of healthcare professionals and others, who live with persistent pain.
The Pain Toolkit was supported by the Department of Health from 2003-2006 and is now used extensively in the UK, Europe and around the world.
Approximately, 650,000 copies have been printed and now in circulation throughout the UK. They have been translated into 15 different languages.
Pete regularly speaks and run workshops for healthcare professionals and patient groups here in the UK, Europe and around the world, about the benefits of pain self-management
Pete is a Member of the:
- (Honouree) British Pain Society (BPS) and supported the BPS when upgrading the desirable criteria for Pain Management Programmes in the UK.
- International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP),
The Enlightenment was an age of endeavors, with Britain consumed by the impulse for grand projects undertaken at speed. Endeavour was also the name given to a collier bought by the Royal Navy in 1768. It was a commonplace coal-carrying vessel that no one could have guessed would go on to become the most significant ship in the chronicle of British exploration.
The first history of its kind, Peter Moore’s Endeavour: The Ship That Changed the World is a revealing and comprehensive account of the storied ship’s role in shaping the Western world. Endeavour famously carried James Cook on his first major voyage, charting for the first time New Zealand and the eastern coast of Australia. Yet it was a ship with many lives: During the battles for control of New York in 1776, she witnessed the bloody birth of the republic. As well as carrying botanists, a Polynesian priest, and the remains of the first kangaroo to arrive in Britain, she transported Newcastle coal and Hessian soldiers. NASA ultimately named a space shuttle in her honor. But to others she would be a toxic symbol of imperialism.
Through careful research, Moore tells the story of one of history’s most important sailing ships, and in turn shines new light on the ambition and consequences of the Age of Enlightenment.
Well it’s for anyone really. Both for people living with persistent pain, their carers and also doctors and healthcare professionals.
As I warned readers on the front cover, I do use some bad language in the eBook, but to be honest I don’t know anyone who lives with pain, who doesn’t swear about having it.
