Innovative programs responding to real needs
Pain BC initiatives are designed collaboratively with people living with pain and front-line health care providers to ensure relevance to their lives and practice contexts. Our many services and programs include:
Pain BC hosts monthly programs, offering practical support and building concrete self management skills for people living with pain. Our workshops and webinars are attended by thousands across BC. All our online programs are archived and added to the extensive resources available on our website.
People in pain are often disbelieved, invalidated, or feel isolated. There are often barriers to accessing treatment or support. Our online peer support community offers meaningful connection, creates a hub for dialogue on new research, and directs people to practical resources in their own communities. Over 5,100 British Columbians find support there, with more joining daily.
