Welcome to our new SIG: Interprofessional Pain Management

Our newest Special Interest Group is a consolidation of our Education, and Nursing Issues SIGs. This new SIG has been formed to address a growing, unmet interest among rehabilitation professionals to become a bigger part of CPS.

Scope of the SIG

The Interprofessional Pain Management SIG will focus on supporting evidence- based care from a biopsychosocial and interprofessional perspective.

  • An interprofessional perspective values collaboration and shared decision making between patients, families, and the healthcare team, with the common goal of improving patient outcomes.
  • SIG membership will be open to all clinicians regardless of whether they are working within an interprofessional setting.
  • An emphasis will be placed on supporting biopsychosocial pain management strategies that can be applied across professional disciplines and practice settings (e.g. educational interventions, self-management strategies).

The objectives of this SIG are to facilitate:

  • Cross-disciplinary collaboration and networking
  • Capacity building and professional development in interprofessional management of pain
  • Knowledge exchange between researchers, clinicians and people living with pain.
