or to find out more about implementing ESCAPE-pain in your organisation. If you've registered on this website, you will receive a regular e-newsletter that includes updates about the ESCAPE-pain programme.
ESCAPE-pain is highlighted in the updated NHS England clinical guidance (pages 15-18) on knee arthroscopy for patients with osteoarthritis in their Evidence-Based Interventions: Guidance for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) published in November 2018 and updated this month.
