Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons to seek healthcare and miss work or school. One in five Canadians is living with chronic pain, and suffer profound adverse impacts on their physical, emotional and occupational functions. In North America alone, chronic pain costs at least $600 billion annually, exceeding costs associated with heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Though progress has been made in pain research, there are many issues that still need to be addressed.

Within the Chronic Pain Network, patients partners help inform research priorities. Network projects include population, behavioural and basic studies, as well as clinical trials, with the goal of creating transformational change in the areas of preclinical, behavioural, clinical, health services, population health and patient engagement research. 

Below is a listing of all current Chronic Pain Network affiliated projects.
