Evidence to Improve Care

Chronic Pain

A quality standard currently in development



This quality standard will address care for people with chronic pain. It will apply to all care settings.

This quality standard will provide guidance on multidisciplinary therapies for chronic pain. It will not address opioid prescribing for chronic pain, which is addressed in a separate Health Quality Ontario quality standard.

This project started in August 2017

Open call to join the advisory committee: September 2017
