Alberta Pain Strategy
The development of the Alberta Pain Strategy was a joint effort of a multi-stakeholder group from across Alberta. Patient and family representatives from across the province have been involved throughout the process, and their stories have been particularly valuable in helping to shape the relevance and importance of this work.
Other contributions include, but are not limited to: chiropractors, community partners, dentists, government, health administrators, nurses, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, paramedics, pharmacists, physiotherapists, primary care physicians, private clinicians, professors, psychologists, radiologists, regulatory authorities, researchers, specialty care physicians, and surgeons.
Overall, more than 360 individuals from across Alberta contributed to the development of the Strategy.
