    1. Primary Care: Increase the capacity of primary care providers to provide evidence-based pain assessment and management, including non-pharmacological approaches

    2. Vulnerable Populations: Enhance outcomes for people living with addictions, mental health issues and chronic pain

    3. Pharmacological Pain Management: Improve assessment, balance harms and benefits of medications, and advance appropriate pain management for patients across the continuum of care

    4. Pain in Rural BC: Expand access to pain management (pharmacological and non-pharmacological) services in rural and remote parts of the province

    5. Seniors in Pain: Improve pain assessment and management (pharmacological and non-pharmacological) for seniors
