The Centre of Excellence’s mission is to foster a national network of interdisciplinary pain management centers using research and evidence-based strategies to care for military veterans and their families.
The Centre of Excellence’s vision is to improve the well-being of military veterans and their families suffering from chronic pain.
Funded by Veterans’ Affairs Canada (VAC), the Centre of Excellence is a national research centre that partners with veterans and their families to build a knowledge system that will shape the future of veteran-first chronic pain management, and keep hope alive for veterans who feel broken.
The Centre of Excellence partners with veterans and their families to set the research agenda, design pain management therapies, and help veterans access care closer to home. Armed with this research, the Centre of Excellence is building a national network of pain clinics, researchers, patients, and VAC case managers to ultimately improve the lives of veterans and their families suffering from chronic pain.
