Collaborations

Teaming up for better results

In the Dalhousie Pain Network, we believe that collaboration makes us stronger. Although we’re based out of Dalhousie University, we work closely with Capital Health and the IWK Health Centre.

By working with a mix of clinicians, basic scientists and other health professionals, we’re able to tap into a whole range of perspectives. By working with regional universities, faculties and departments—as well as experts working in the health service sector—we gain access to a wealth of expertise.

A multidisciplinary approach

Nova Scotia patients benefit from the kind of high quality clinical research that can only come from a team with pain expertise and a range of specialists in a number of related disciplines. The disciplines represented by the Dalhousie Pain Network include:

  • anesthesiology
  • biomedical engineering
  • community health and epidemiology
  • computer science
  • dentistry
  • neurosurgery
  • nursing
  • occupational therapy
  • palliative care
  • paediatrics
  • pharmacy
  • psychology
  • pharmacology
  • physiotherapy
  • psychiatry
