Read about the Improving Pain Care in Saskatchewan.
The Improving Pain Care in Saskatchewan research team grew from an idea generated by SaskPain stakeholder dialogues. The goal of this research is to improve community access to services and supports for pain management in Saskatchewan by giving pain a voice in health services planning. They will create safe places for community members to discuss their chronic pain and to plan for action. Through a series of interviews and planning sessions, They will support teams in Saskatoon’s downtown core neighbourhoods, Yorkton, and Regina (pediatric services) to identify chronic pain needs and make plans to address those needs.
