Canadian Pediatric Pain Clinics
A population study exploring Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) cases, in children and youth, presenting to paediatricians and pediatric chronic pain centres across Canada. With a proposed surveillance duration of two years, and utilizing the established methodology of the Canadian Paediatric Surveillance Program, research will provide important incidence data and describe pediatric case characteristics. This foundational data will promote early recognition and treatment of CRPS in childhood and adolescence, as well as inform the education of pain health professionals both nationally and internationally.
