More About the KB Chronic Pain Project & Survey:

We’ve recently completed a Chronic Pain Project in the region, with the goal of creating a regional network of care for people living with chronic pain. 

In Spring 2021, we reached out to Kootenay Boundary residents to better understand the experiences of those who need or are receiving care for pain. We received feedback from 245 individuals and the primary need voiced was to improve access to chronic pain care and supports.

This feedback - along with the guidance and support of the project steering committee, including local physicians, allied health care providers, and patient partners living with pain - informed the project throughout.

Some of the key building blocks we've put in place in the past year to help improve access to chronic pain care and supports include: 

Chronic pain information

  • Updated the Division patient web portal to include information on referrals, services, education, and chronic pain self-management.

Tools to manage pain

  • Developed a Chronic Pain Toolkit for primary care providers and other practitioners to help patients develop a personal care plan.
  • Encouraged clinics to host facilitated patient chronic pain self-management programs locally. Currently Making Sense of Pain is offered in the Kootenay Boundary.

Access to chronic pain care

  • Developed a Kootenay Boundary Inventory of chronic pain care providers. 

We also developed tools and resources to support local practitioners in caring for patients living with pain.

We’re now reaching back out to seek patient feedback from individuals who are seeking or receiving care for chronic pain – this time we are hoping to understand your experience with the new chronic pain care resources developed. Your input will help us continue to improve and strengthen access to pain care and supports for local patients.

The Kootenay Boundary Shared Care Chronic Pain project initiative has been delivered through the Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice with funding and support from Shared Care, a joint committee of the BC Ministry of Health and Doctors of BC.
