About the Power over Pain Portal
Who we are:
The Power of Pain portal was developed as a collaborative effort with youth living with pain, researchers, and healthcare providers to bring virtual resources to young people living with pain in Canada. The project is funded by the Government of Canada (Canadian Institutes of Health Research [CIHR]).
We know the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the way we feel and the way we access care for chronic pain. It’s hard managing pain, especially during the pandemic but you’re not alone. We’re with you on this journey, and have put together specific tools and resources that you can access from home to help manage pain.
How it works:
Once you set up a basic profile, you’ll have access to a short questionnaire that includes questions tailored to better understand your specific needs. You’ll be asked to complete the questionnaire every 2 weeks in order to track how you’re doing and better understand what areas you might want help with. Each time you complete the questionnaire, you’ll get some feedback on how you’re doing and some suggested resources that can help you manage your pain. Click here to get started on your journey!
