Summary points: 1. The majority of people living with persistent pain will receive treatment for the pain from nonspecialists in pain management who may not have received the necessary training to deliver highquality care. 2. There is now a wide range of learning platforms and packages available, but these may struggle to reach beyond those with a specialist interest. Addressing this will require action at both local and national levels to prioritise training in pain management. 3. Although education may improve knowledge, changing behaviour will require a wider change in clinical culture, including changing public and clinical attitudes and ensuring that the NHS recognises, prioritises and rewards high-quality pain management.
