New report calls for overhaul of chronic pain treatment
from CTV News
A new report from the Canadian Pain Task Force is calling the issue of chronic pain a "significant public health issue" and says the health sector has a chance to overhaul how it is treated to better help Canadians. The report notes that one in five Canadians are thought to live with chronic pain, with two-thirds of those reporting their pain as moderate to severe. "People living with pain have limited access to the services they require and often face stigma and undue suffering as a result of their condition," the report reads.
