Pain BC Relief for Caregivers

Do any of your care recipients live with chronic or persistent aches or  pain? One in five British Columbians do, and chances are your care recipients experience chronic pain in even greater numbers. Chronic pain is not only a symptom of many illnesses and conditions; it’s also a condition and invisible illness in itself. But people suffering from soreness and their caregivers are not alone! Pain BC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people in pain through education, empowerment, and innovation.

This webinar will give caregivers the knowledge, tools and confidence to use Pain BC’s free services and supports for care recipients living with pain. Leah Chang is Pain BC’s Education Lead and creates educational resources for patients and providers using an integrated approach. She’ll give a live demonstration of Live Plan Be, Pain BC’s free, online self-management tool that both patients and family caregivers can use.
