Chronic Pain

The goal of this free program is to help those who have been living with pain for 6-months or more learn how to manage pain and improve overall function. It does not promise pain elimination; the focus is on self-management through education.

How can this program help me?

Along with offering one-on-one appointments with our clinicians, you will attend an 8-week Alberta Program called Moving On with Persistent Pain.

Moving On With Persistent Pain is 8-weeks of interactive sessions that focus on the mind-body connection and lifestyle factors, highlighting simple changes and goal setting. Topics include: exercise, nutrition, sleep, medication, managing grief, stress, relaxation skills and coping strategies.

*Prior to participation in the workshop we will require the following completed –  PCN Waiver, Exercise clearance from your doctor (we will arrange this), and an Intake form. 

Who will I work with in the program?

You will have access to an interdisciplinary healthcare team including: an Active Living Consultant, a Pharmacist, a Mental Health clinician, and a Physician. Who you work with depends on your goals.

How do I join?

You can join the Chronic Pain program through a referral from your  primary care provider, by calling the PCN directly to book in, or by registering for the next Moving On with Persistent Pain session under Community Classes.
