East Kootenay Division of Family Practice
The East Kootenay Division of Family Practice works to continuously develop better and more comprehensive primary care in the region. Thanks to Shared Care’s financial support, the Division has been working for the last year to improve chronic pain care in the Elk Valley.

In other communities the creation of a peer support group proved to be really helpful for people with chronic pain. The first step to creating a local group in the Elk Valley is to find volunteers to facilitate the group meetings.

Self-Management BC is offering free leadership training in Fernie. Anyone interested can send an email to elkvalleychronicpain@gmail. com or contact Christine Bramwell, Self-Management BC coordinator, at bramwell@uvic.ca.

More resources regarding chronic pain can be found at painbc.ca/elkvalley.
