HOW TO MAKE IT HAPPEN: POLITICAL STRATEGIES FOR ADVANCING PAIN EDUCATION ACROSS CANADA


Program Outline:

The aim of this workshop is to develop political advocacy to ensure that regulatory and professional colleges promote interprofessional pain education for all Canadian Health Care Professionals. We anticipate that they will do this by recognizing opportunities where they might influence policy and develop a plan of action, in their own practice. By the end of the workshop participants will:

  1. Understand how they can influence the professional bodies that accredit, license and write laws to regulate Canadian healthcare professionals.
  2. Advocate for better access to best practice pain treatments and education for Canadians who experience with pain.

Tuesday May 23, 2017 (limited to 30 participants)

Speaker Biographies

Professor Emeritus John H.V. Gilbert, C.M., Ph.D., LLD, FCAHS has been a seminal leader in the education of health professionals in British Columbia, Canada and internationally. In the latter part of his career it was his vision and leadership that led to the concept of interprofessional education being developed as a central tenet of team-based collaborative patient-centred practice and care. He was elected a Fellow, Canadian Academy of Health Sciences, in 2008, awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in April 2012, and appointed a Member of the Order of Canada, in July 2011. He received a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, from Dalhousie University in May 2016.

Dr. Angela Mailis M.D., FRCPC-Physiatry, M.Sc. founded and directed the Comprehensive Pain Program at Toronto Western Hospital/UHN from 1982-2015.  She formed Action Ontario whose advocacy led to the Ministry of Health of Ontario developing a province-wide comprehensive pain strategy which includes interprofessional specialty pain clinics in Ontario’s six academic centres as well as Project ECHO Ontario to tele-mentor healthcare providers. She now runs the Pain+Wellness Centre in Vaughan, the first Ministry-funded community-based academic interdisciplinary pain clinic in Ontario.
