Characteristics of patients referred to CHANGEpain


Characteristics of chronic non-cancer pain (CNCP) patients in Canada have been previously described within tertiary chronic pain care centers, but few data on characteristics of patients presenting to community-based secondary chronic pain clinics, and namely those in British Columbia (BC), are available. Clinical data on patient characteristics will define our population and facilitate service changes to best meet the needs of our patients. In the context of the momentum towards a chronic pain strategy in BC, this study can contribute to understanding the needs and characteristics of the 1 in 5 British Columbians who live with chronic pain.


The principal objective of this study is to describe the patient population referred to a novel, secondary, community-based, multidisciplinary, chronic pain clinic based in Vancouver, BC.

The secondary objectives are to differentiate patient characteristics between those with widespread pain versus localized pain, and to predict, based on our clinical sample, widespread pain using patient demographic, characteristic, and baseline pain-related outcome measures.
