Chronic Non-Cancer Pain (CNCP) presents a serious challenge for Canada with severe social and economic cost. Chronic pain negatively impacts the quality of life of its sufferers. Individuals living with chronic pain are high users of healthcare services and therefore place a substantial demand on the healthcare system.
Self-management support (SMS) is considered an effective approach to chronic pain management however; the provision of SMS for chronic pain patients faces challenges within primary care facilities in Ontario.
In this interactive webinar, you will learn how this chronic pain self-management program, led by a Registered Nurse can be successfully integrated into a primary care setting that can help some of the most complex patients. The intervention is based on evidence based self-management principles and tools, and it also addresses components of the opioid crisis. This Nurse-led program is feasible, evidence based and cost effective and could be scaled up across Ontario.
