Goal: Build a foundation of knowledge, resources, and advocacy to support accessible, coordinated pain management services and education in Saskatchewan. 

What we do: Identify and implement strategies to improve pain management in Saskatchewan. Primary drivers of this work are:

  • Knowledgeable and engaged healthcare providers
  • Knowledgeable and engaged people with pain and their significant others
  • Specialty services for pain assessment and management
  • Infrastructures to support quality practice and training.   

Working Groups: Based on stakeholder dialogues in 2014 and 2016, key improvement strategies were identified and categorized into four working groups. 

  • Pain Foundation
  • Education 
  • Research and Knowledge Translation
  • Practice
