Dr. Manon Choinière
Louise and Alan Edwards Foundation Award in Pain Research
Part of my research work consists of implementing a registry of adult patients who are referred and followed up in 12 multidisciplinary pain treatment clinics across Canada, including the Alan Edwards Pain Management Unit. This registry is designed to assist clinicians in their efforts to improve the condition of their patients, as well as guide decision makers in their choice and allocation of treatment resources/services for the management of chronic pain. This registry will also provide researchers with a national clinical research infrastructure for conducting large multi-site studies aiming at improving the treatment of chronic pain.
