The Pain Resource Centre is designed to be a centralized resource about pain and pain management for Canadians. The PRC is a place on the web where people can obtain reliable information about pain so that they can help themselves, their clients, their family members, friends, and co-workers.
The information that you will find in the Pain Resource Centre has been written and compiled by Canadian experts in pain and pain management who have volunteered their time to help us create this valuable resource for you. There is a great deal of helpful information available and it takes time to pull it together. Phase I has been prepared for the site launch on May 27, 2009 and Phase II will be added in October 2009. We will be constantly adding and updating resources as they develop.
The Canadian Pain Coalition and the Education Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Canadian Pain Society have worked together to create the Pain Resource Centre because we know how difficult it can be for people who live with pain and health professionals to access resources for effective pain management. We hope that the information we provide will help to promote better understanding, treatment, and management of pain for Canadians and others who visit the site.
