National Pain Awareness Week - November 3 - 10, 2019

The first week of November is the Pain Awareness Week across Canada. Did you know that 20% of the population lives with chronic pain? No wonder the Federal Minister of Health has created a Canadian Pain Task Force! Several activities will be offered during the next week. Check out some of these activities on the Canadian Pain Society website. In Quebec, the Quebec Association on Chronic Pain will launch its publicity campaign for the appropriate use of opioids on Saturday, November 2 at 1 pm at the Mercier House of Culture https://www.accesculture.com/emplacement/maisondelaculturemercier

Thereafter, there will be a conference by Philippe de Grandpré, pharmacist specialized in chronic pain, on the good use of opioids. His conference will be available later on video on the AQDC website.
