Professor Mike Hurley’s rehabilitation programme, ESCAPE-pain, one of 11 innovations selected to join the nationally-celebrated NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA).

Since it launched in July 2015, the NIA has supported the uptake and spread of 25 high-impact, evidence-based innovations across 799 NHS organisations.

Each of the new innovations joining the NIA in 2017 offer solutions to key challenges in Primary Care, Urgent and Emergency Care and Mental Health. ESCAPE-pain is a rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain. It is proven to reduce pain for patients and help them to understand their condition, at a lower cost to healthcare organisations.

ESCAPE-pain’s recruitment onto the NIA follows an international call and robust selection process, including review by a collegiate of over 100 assessors and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
