The UTCSP engages a diverse membership of approximately 100 faculty and trainees and provides support to their broad research and education activities. In addition, the Centre delivers the Interfaculty Pain Curriculum on an annual basis, the Annual Pain Meeting, and educational workshops and seminars. Members also work to build awareness about pain management and practice, including use of guidelines and improving IP collaborations.
