About the event

Meaningful engagement with people with lived experience is increasingly recognized and practiced in the chronic pain space. Processes and practices of engagement still face many challenges, especially when it comes to engaging with systemically and structurally marginalized groups. This session will focus on the work developed through the SSHRC-funded Partnership for the Engagement of People in Pain Research (PEPR), which aims to advance social science research in the field of chronic pain and build capacity for critical social science approaches to pain research.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss how those involved in chronic pain research and patient engagement, including clinicians, researchers, and people with lived experience, can build critical thinking into their work, including expanding notions of “who counts.”
  2. Highlight how critical social science can inform efforts to meaningfully engage with historically marginalized groups.
  3. Explore how questions of equity, diversity, inclusivity, and decolonization have been taken up in critical pain scholarship, and how these inquiries might support more equitable forms of patient engagement.

A discussion between scientists, health professionals, educators, and pain advocates on a myriad of topics related to chronic pain. Offering a platform for innovative minds to bring forward inspiring ideas and discover solutions to help you in your practice. #canadianpainrounds National Pain Rounds takes place on the last Friday of every month.  National Pain Rounds and other virtual events are a discussion between scientists, health professionals, educators, and pain advocates.   This program receives funding from the Government of Canada.
