The CNS Pain Program includes multidisciplinary pain clinics in non-cancer neuropathic pain and cancer-related pain. The non-cancer Neuropathic Pain Clinic is the only pain clinic devoted solely to neuropathic pain in Canada and is held at the St Joseph’s Pain Clinic on Fridays under the direction of Dr Dwight Moulin. Management of neuropathic pain is guided by the Canadian Consensus Guidelines on Neuropathic Pain(2014) which originated at our centre. The cancer pain clinic is known as the Pain and Symptom Clinic and is held every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon at the London Regional Cancer Program(LRCP). This clinic deals with cancer pain related to the disease process and to treatment and involves a neuro-oncologist(Dr Dwight Moulin) with input from medical and radiation oncologists, nurses, social workers and other allied health workers at LRCP.
