NeP kNOw More 2007 Podcasts
The NeP kNOw More 2007 podcast series are edited audio recording of each doctor’s presentation at the public forums with an introduction done by Charmaine Crooks, the national spokesperson last year.
Each public forum featured a different Canadian physician who talked about neuropathic pain and provided a hopeful perspective for patients and their families. The goal of the public forums series is raise awareness of neuropathic pain and to change attitudes and opinions on its causes, treatments and diagnosis, as well as to educate about advances in research and treatment.
Neuropathic pain, often referred to as “nerve pain”, is a disease caused by injury or dysfunction of the nerves, spinal cord or brain. It is estimated that 2.2-million Canadians suffer from neuropathic pain, often in combination with other types of pain such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and migraine headaches. Other causes of neuropathic pain include diabetes, shingles or herpes zoster, pain following a stroke, multiple sclerosis and limb amputation.
Putting Neuropathic Pain on the Podium is sponsored through an unrestricted educational grant from Pfizer Canada.
