    The Local Pain Educator (LPE) program is a community based health promotion initiative with a focus on local capacity building.

    Local health practitioners, have been selected to be LPEs, and are undergoing training and mentoring in pain education.


    The LPEs represent a range of disciplines and sectors. The aim of the program is to raise awareness of pain neurobiology and application of pain education to a biopsychosocial pain model of care.
