MAJOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO SCIENCE AND/OR HEALTH CARE DELIVERY
I am the inaugural Medical Director of the Toronto Academic Pain Medicine Institute and the Co-Chair of the Ministry of Health, Ontario Chronic Pain Network. Under my stewardship for the last 5 years, the TAPMI program referral volumes have tripled. Our program is projected to receive over 7000 chronic pain referrals in 2023, making us the largest pain program in the world. My governance has allowed our interprofessional team to deliver cutting-edge interventions in pain management. The TAPMI program model has been highlighted for national and international dissemination in Alberta, BC, Quebec and Australia.
