Pain is universal to human existence. One in five Canadians experiences chronic pain. On average, they wait two to five years before seeing a pain specialist.  

This half-hour webinar features Dr. Pam Squire who provides a guided tour of the resources offered in the Pain Toolkit which is co-authored by a collaborative of Canadian pain specialists, researchers and people living with pain. This toolkit will undoubtedly become an indispensible tool for people with pain in their journey towards self-management. 

This webinar will offer some fascinating highlights on:  

  • An overview of new resources & tools in the Pain Toolkit for self-managing and controlling pain.
  • A doctor’s perspective on how pain patients can work with their health providers.
  • An opportunity for audience participation through online polls and moderated Q&A
