Thinking Outside the Medicine Cabinet
CADTH completed a series of evidence reviews and appraised the research on the effectiveness of non-pharmacological methods for treatment of chronic, non-cancer pain. Information from these reviews was used to develop patient and clinician resources in collaboration with the Saskatchewan Health Authority. See cadth.ca/chronicpain. Evidence summaries contain practical tips for supporting patients who are exploring these non-drug treatment options.
