Coaching for Health Client

“I felt like I was out of ideas until these coaching sessions started. I wasn’t getting anywhere with physio or counseling. Now I feel much more in control and positive, and I’m finding new ways to get active, despite the pain.”

Pain Support Line Client

“I’m glad I made the call. It was very helpful to know that others have a true understanding of what chronic pain is and how it affects all aspects of your life.”

Coaching for Health Client

“If you’re living with pain and you’re tired of living with pain alone, this program is for you. Coaching for Health has helped me overcome a lot of the challenges I had with my sense of self-worth, my confidence and my ability to even prioritize what’s important. This program has helped me far beyond words can even describe.”

Naomi Kupferstein, DC, Vaughan, ON

“For a manual therapist providing care for chronic pain patients, Dr. Assimakopoulos’ course on chronic pain was thoroughly informative and provided a wealth of information that could be directly applied to practice. The evidence and knowledge provided is something any treating provider can take into practice. Dr. Assimakopoulos is changing the way we look at and manage chronic pain.”

Erin

“If there is one course that every RMT needs to take, it is your Pain BC course. It completely changed how I think about chronic pain and has given me some tools to be more effective at treating it.”

Bruce

“Eric teaches with humour and good grace without a hint of arrogance or egotism. He speaks passionately and confidently on a topic he is obviously quite knowledgeable about. The [RMT] course focuses on how we think and encourages us to ask some big questions. If you’re ready for a paradigm shift, this course will be the first step in that direction.”

Maria Hudspith, Executive Director, Pain BC

“Research is a priority for Pain BC. In developing this Network, Pain BC will play a critical role in bringing together people in pain, health care providers, and policy makers with researchers to make a concrete difference in the lives of people in pain.”

Dr. Patricia Daly, Chief Medical Health Officer, Vancouver Coastal Health, at the Pain and Overdose Dialogue

“Collaboration is essential to addressing this crisis.”

Pain Support and Wellness Group attendee

I think this program is such a great support. It’s just nice to know people can relate with what you are going through.

Pain Support and Wellness Group attendee

Wow, I attended my first support group today. I am not alone; I am not weird. Kindness, support, and caring people will be guiding this group. If anyone is in doubt about coming, try it – you will like it.

Pain Support Line caller

For the longest time, I needed help [but] I wasn’t sure if it was available. [The Pain Support Line] gave me the motivation to say, ‘you needed the help, you should go ask for it.’

Pain Support Line caller

It was just like chatting to a friend.  [The Pain Support Line volunteer] listened to my story and gave me resources. It was great.

Pain BC Facebook follower

I first found Pain BC through its Facebook page and that’s still the main way I connect with [the organization]. It was so friendly there and I felt like part of the community right away. Someone from Pain BC always replies to my messages right away and other people in the group are always so quick to offer support. It might seem like a small thing, but that Facebook group is now a really important part of my life.

Coaching for Health client

I never imagined that Coaching for Health could be so helpful. Working with the coach helped me overcome the fear of trying new things.

Pain Support Line volunteer

I feel like I have learned more from Pain BC than I have even from some of my health care providers. I feel like I have grown a lot as a person because of volunteering. It’s a really great environment and I get to learn from the other volunteers [and] all our supervisors. I am learning constantly

Pain Foundations course participant

Very useful and relevant – one of the best online health related course I have taken. I can’t wait to use the tools and resources!

Pain Foundations course participant

I enjoyed the well-rounded approach with cultural considerations for our diverse population of patients. Understanding the importance of body language, choice of wording and sensitivity to trauma is extremely helpful in changing my approach when working with a patient experiencing chronic pain.

Gentle Movement course participant

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, every health care professional should take it! I now have a better understanding of pain and have adopted tools that will help me improve function in my clients living with chronic pain.

Gentle Movement course participant

I have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to take this course. It was an exceptionally well-designed, thorough, and valuable resource that is greatly appreciated. Sincere gratitude to all the hard work, expertise, and care that went into creating it.

Dr. Judy Dercksen, rural GP and ECHO attendee

I love the ability to connect via video to get input from specialists on my most challenging cases. The team was very knowledgeable and supportive, which made it a very valuable experience.

Shachi Kurl
Angus Reid Institute
Executive Director

As a society, we need to think more about these issues. This study enables us to think about how we are going approach pain management more creatively in this country.

EQUIP for Pain focus group member

Contributing to this type of work is how I take care of myself and my well-being. It’s reassuring to know that Pain BC is doing this work and it gives me hope that health care services will continue to become safer and more inclusive spaces.

Coaching for Health client

I was not sure how my pain management was going to be impacted by giving birth, so being connected to a coach helped me feel very supported, especially while navigating the uncertainty of a pandemic. It was [the coach’s] respectful, knowledgeable, empathetic, genuinely caring, and constant support and very ethical way of being that made this program so truly life changing for me.

Coaching for Health client

Since speaking with Pain BC’s coach on a weekly basis, I have regained my confidence, strength and courage to believe in myself again. Coaching has helped me look past my pain.

Making Sense of Pain for Indigenous Peoples participant

During the low points in my week, when my pain is bad, I focus my attention on Thursday’s class. I breathe and feel joy and relief in my body. I feel the stamina and courage to keep going.

Pain Support and Wellness Group facilitator

Being part of the [Pain Support and Wellness Group] facilitator team has really done more for me than I’ve done for others. This has truly been a gift to me.

Coaching for Health volunteer

This program is special and so valuable. I’m riding high after such a great call [with my client]. It has spurred me to take more courses to grow my skills. I want to do this every day!

Pain Support and Wellness Group facilitator

Volunteering for Pain BC has brought purpose to my life. I have met so many wonderful people – both my fellow co-facilitators, the staff of Pain BC and, last but not least, the people who attend the meetings. We learn from each other.

Pain Support and Wellness Group attendee

I can’t say enough positive things about the [Pain Support and Wellness Group] program, and other programs offered by Pain BC. Thank you for this service. It has really helped me cope with chronic pain. I don’t feel quite so alone.

Pain Support and Wellness Group attendee

I really enjoyed the [Pain Support and Wellness Group] session and was pleasantly surprised as this was my very first pain support group where I shared openly and honestly. I look forward to attending again.

Pain Support and Wellness Group attendee

I love how the groups moved to Zoom. As a person with chronic pain, it is challenging to commit to showing up in person every time. Online has made it very accessible and made it possible to attend after 2 years of wanting to. Last night I just signed up for a couple more. Thanks for all you do.

Gentle Movement and Relaxation course participant

This excellent course significantly increased my confidence and provided me with tools and resources.

BC ECHO for Chronic Pain participant

The [BC ECHO for Chronic Pain] sessions are extremely helpful. Participating [in] these sessions helps me feel less isolated and validates my treatment approach. I also learn a lot about areas that I don’t know a lot about. I truly appreciate the interdisciplinary context of these sessions.

BC ECHO for Chronic Pain participant

The [BC ECHO for Chronic Pain] is a wonderful learning platform. I love the short didactic to build knowledge. The most helpful learning for me is from the rich case discussions and learning from the expert opinions – and the recognition that pain management is not just about pharmaceutical approaches. Thank you. I am a fan.

BC ECHO for Chronic Pain participant

The [BC ECHO for Chronic Pain] sessions are a great way to gain perspective from a variety of health care professionals and have access to multiple lessons working on a similar goal; to help guide the individual in pain to the best way we know how.
