WHO ARE WE?
We are a volunteer group working to raise awareness about the prevalence and impact of chronic pain.
We maintain support groups throughout our region, run awareness campaigns, display street banners and organise informative events during National Pain Awareness Week, and frequently reach out to politicians, doctors, educators and other key "influencers". We have compiled facts, resources, a news letter and other information in this website. We hope you find it helpful.
We strive to support patients and to advocate for improved and equal access to pharmaceuticals and treatment on behalf of all chronic pain sufferers in Atlantic Canada regardless of financial status.
Our Mission is to improve all aspects of Chronic Pain care in Atlantic Canada.
The association exists to engage in advocacy and education to foster positive policy change to improve access to all types of Chronic Pain care and treatment.
The association is committed to education and public awareness of Chronic Pain; thus enabling and empowering communities and governments to recognize the values, rights, needs and wishes of all persons living with Chronic Pain.
Our vision is to make chronic pain a key health issue that is no longer invisible.
Action Atlantic is proud to be working in partnership with the Chronic Pain Association Of Canada, a national registered charity.
