CPSBC Draft Procedural Pain Management Standard
Accepting feedback until May 27, 2019
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC
is seeking feedback on a draft Standard on Procedural Pain Management Accreditation that will limit which doctors are able to perform certain injection-based pain management procedures.
Pain BC is concerned that the new regulations are too restrictive and unnecessarily reduce access to pain management treatments for people who already have too few options for care.
We encourage you to read the Standard and share your feedback with the College before May 27, 2019. Please note that the consultation questions are quite limited in scope. We encourage you to share your concerns when asked this question: Do you have concerns about the College improving the safety and quality of procedural pain management procedures performed in community-based physician offices, practices and clinics?
