It had been four years since he was targeted in Afghanistan by Taliban insurgents, who triggered an explosion that claimed both his legs above the knee. From that moment, pain has been a consta...

Each day, hundreds of Canadians sustain a workplace injury, often experiencing acute or even chronic pain as a result. Proper treatment is essential. Living with unmanaged pain can lead to sleeplessness, depression, anxiety, diminished quality of life and isolation. 36% of non-employed persons with a pain-related disability have work potential. Sometimes all it takes is minor accommodations. #NPAW2020 #LivingWithPain

Accessing care in multidisciplinary pain treatment facilities continues to be a challenge in Canada

Check out this new paper from @cpn_rdc Principal Applicant Manon Choinière and many other CPN researchers. It's a 10-year update on the Canadian STOP-PAIN project.

Some time ago, someone posted an article written by a doctor, stating that only people with addictive personalities, such as those with abuse in their backgrounds, get addicted to pain meds. It also had statistics about the low percentage of actual addicts compared to people who use pain meds responsibly. Does anyone know the article I'm talking about and, if so, could you repost it? It was along the lines, when I read it, as, "Okay, this doctor is finally catching up to what drug counselors and therapists have known for years."
