This is a collaborative effort between the McGill Queen Elizabeth GMF-U, Herzl Family Practice Center and the Alan Edwards Pain Management Unit (Montreal General Hospital) with support of the McGill and Université de Montréal PBRNs (RRAPPL). Many young patients with chronic painful conditions benefit from coordination of multiple specialties. However, they may face a significant breach in care while transitioning from childhood to adult services. Family medicine practitioners as case managers help bridge this gap but often lack ways to communicate with multiple providers efficiently. This project aims to change primary care practice by implementing patient-oriented tools to improve interdisciplinary communication and collaboration via patient-partner and patient activation approaches.
