What is the Education SIG?

Education: Special Interest Groups (SIG)

Established in Dec 2007, the Education SIG serves to foster an
interdisciplinary collaborative effort to faciliate dissemination of
knowledge to health care professionals and patients in order to enhance the
understanding of pain. The topics for the working groups could include, but
are not limited to:

  1. Establish a patient education and resource centre
  2. Set up a refresher course for chronic pain
  3. Create a study manual/quick reference guide for trainees and practitioners
  4. Develop a curriculum for the prospective Royal College Subspecialty training in Pain management
  5. Further enhance pain education at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the health professional educational programs across Canada.
