With Dr. Arun Radhakrishnan’s leadership, the Centre for Effective Practice has partnered with the Atlantic Mentorship Network - Pain & Addiction and Pain BC to develop adaptive mentoring networks in the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and British Columbia.

These networks will support primary care providers’ capacity to provide compassionate and effective care for Canadians struggling with chronic pain, substance use and/or mental illness. It is well-recognized that many of these patients experience difficulty accessing care.

The establishment of these programs is made possible through a four-year funding agreement from Health Canada’s Substance Use and Addictions Program.
