Painful Diabetic Peripheral Polyneuropathy (PDPP), like Diabetes Mellitus, is a Chronic Condition. It is managed, not cured, no matter how many resources are implemented. As clinicians managing patients with this condition we need to understand how to assess them and when and who to refer to for further management. This talk will explore the assessments clinicians can implement in their practices to assess Neuropathic pain, identifying when to refer on and learn what treatments might be offered to the patients in a Pain Management Service. Multi Modal Management is currently to mainstay of evidence based practice, Cognitive treatments / Physical Therapies / Medical Management strategies are all considered.
