Persistent Cardiac Pain Resource Centre
Dear CPC Members,
The Canadian Pain Coalition is pleased to announce the recent launch of the Canadian Journal of Cardiology (CJC) Persistent Cardiac Pain multimedia resource centre. This resource centre, entitled, CardiacPain.Net, is designed to raise awareness and provide information about debilitating, persistent forms of cardiac pain. Every day thousands of Canadians live with persistent cardiac pain arising from such conditions as chronic stable angina (CSA), refractory angina (RFA), and cardiac syndrome X (CSX).
To raise awareness and provide education about this often difficult to treat disorder, CardiacPain.Net was developed through a unique partnership of the Canadian Pain Coalition with our research team (M. McGillion, Lead), Elsevier, the Canadian Cardiovascular Society, The Heart and Stroke Foundation, and Argyle Communications (a major Canadian public relations firm).
A major strength of CardiacPain.Net is that it was developed for both the public and health professionals. What is more, affected Canadian citizens were involved in its design and creation. CardiacPain.Net offers open-access resources, narrated video presentations, expert and citizen roundtable discussions, downloadable fact sheets, and a forum supporting interactivity with our experts.
Officially launched in March 2014, CardiacPain.net has been praised in the Canadian media (http://www.chch.com/coronary-conditions-norm/) as a truly unique and international approach to raising awareness.
