Intake, Explaining Pain and Treatment Planning Workshop

First steps at the Pain Centre

1. Meet with a Chronic Pain Nurse

Your treatment begins with Chronic Pain Nurse appointment where you will complete our intake questionnaire and learn more about the Chronic Pain Centre programs.  We want to make sure this is a good time for you to participate and assist you with any concerns you might have about attending.

2. Explaining Pain Group

Once you have seen the Chronic Pain Nurse, your next step will be the Explaining Pain Group. It will help answer questions you have about chronic pain and how to manage it. If you want to get a head start, you can watch an online version of the presentation here.  Note: The video refers to Goals Group as the next step. This group is now called Treatment Planning Workshop.

3. Treatment Planning Workshop

Soon after you have attended the Explaining Pain Group in person, you will be invited to the Treatment Planning Workshop. Within a small group of other patients, you will identify the action plans that are most important to you. This will allow us to personalize your treatment so that you are ultimately successful at what is most important to you.
