AbbVie Sustainable Healthcare announces ESCAPE- pain as finalist for award

November 1, 2016

AbbVie, a global biopharmaceutical company, today announced the finalists of its inaugural Sustainable Healthcare ‘Patients as Partners’ Award. The AbbVie Big Ideas for Better Health Awards were launched by AbbVie in 2015 as a way to recognise, celebrate and share exceptional examples of improvements and innovation that demonstrate a clear benefit to the lives of patients.

The ESCAPE-pain team was recognised for enabling patients with exercises that can manage pain caused by osteoarthritis, also known as chronic joint pain. This has empowered patients to manage their osteoarthritis through selfcare, has reduced hospital admissions and saved NHS resources. Winners will receive a £3,000 bursary to extend their project or pilot new ideas for the benefit of patients and/or the NHS.
