Respondents, Canadian Pain Task Force Public Consultation

Posted • Last updated


Open to Patients, caregivers and researchers across Canada

Last updated

The Canadian Pain Task Force launched a national public consultation to learn more about the issues, needs and priorities that matter most to Canadians in order to improve how pain is understood and managed in our country. The consultation provides a critical opportunity for Canadians to share their perspectives on chronic pain and is open to anyone with an interest in pain, including people living with pain, caregivers, health care providers, researchers, policy makers and the general public. The input received from this consultation will help inform the Task Force’s second report to Health Canada in June 2020, which will outline elements of an improved approach to pain in Canada.

The Canadian Pain Task Force was established by Health Canada in spring of 2019 to recommend an improved approach to pain care, education, research and data monitoring in Canada.

I was thrilled to discover the Patient Voices Network, where the array of places to be the voice of a patient is vast and incredibly interesting. Besides my ongoing “gig” with the BC Emergency Medicine Network, I have enjoyed being involved in several one-off initiatives. I love working with professionals who genuinely value the perspectives of their patient partners.
