Orofacial Pain Pathways for Clinicians

Developing specific pathways for patients is an essential step to provide consistency and quality in care. The pathway provides a structure to incorporate evidence base throughout patient care from presentation with their complaint, assessment, investigations, diagnosis, treatment, to reassessment and outcome

We provide some ‘home grown’ PDF pathways for different orofacial pain conditions that are currently draft version that we use currently with the aim to develop and validate them.
