Have you reduced your opioid use and would like to help others do the same?

The I-WOTCH study is a clinical trial co-ordinated from the Warwick Clinical Trials Unit, University of Warwick and is funded by the National Institute of Health Research Health Technology Assessment (project number 14/224/04). The study aims to test the effectiveness of a patient-centred self-management group intervention, comparing withdrawal of strong opioids for people with non-malignant pain, with best usual care.

We are looking for individuals with experience of living with long-term, non-cancer pain, who have reduced or stopped their own opioid medication, to deliver and facilitate the I-WOTCH intervention at venues in and around the Midlands and North East England, alongside a trained nurse facilitator.

You will need effective communication skills to facilitate the group sessions, encourage discussion and inform and empower participants about self-management techniques. Full training will be given over two days, prior to delivering the intervention. This is a paid role on a variable hours basis.
