Chronic Pain

Shared Care has initiated a new network to improve care for patients with chronic pain, and to support communities in the spread of successful work across BC. The goal is to work with partners such as the Ministry of Health and Pain BC, to better coordinate initiatives to address chronic pain across the province. 

What we're working on:

  • Consultation and engagement with stakeholders and communities across BC to determine gaps, areas of interest and common themes.
  • Partnering with communities on chronic pain projects. Six have engaged with several more expressing interest.  
  • A steering committee is being organized to guide and inform the work.
  • A chronic pain workshop will be held in the fall.
  • An evaluator has been hired to develop an evaluation framework and plan.
  • A toolkit will be developed with resources and tools to support the work.
  • Development of a community of practice.
