Veteran and Family Well-Being Series:
A Person-Centered, Evidence-Based Approach to Chronic Pain
This fall, our Veteran and Family Well-Being Series will be held virtually, co-hosted by LGen (Ret’d) Eric B. Schoomaker and LGen (Ret’d) Michel Maisonneuve, Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). Targeting a broad audience of Veterans, case managers, and health care professionals, the aim of the series is to provide education on the evolution of pain management and current best practices in evidence-based interdisciplinary care. Speakers will include respected researchers from the Centre of Excellence, its extended network of pain management centres, as well as researchers from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and United States Department of Defense (DOD).
The Chronic Pain Centre of Excellence for Canadian Veterans was established to conduct research and help improve the well-being of CAF Veterans, and their families, suffering from chronic pain. Funded by Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), the not-for-profit organization is working to improve the ability to treat pain with evidence-based recommendations. Ongoing research includes the effectiveness of cannabis in managing chronic pain, impact of sex/gender on pain experience and the response to therapy, and the effectiveness of virtual care.
