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.
