We recommend using Google Chrome for optimal performance. After registering, you should receive an email with course login instructions and a temporary password.

Submit a case presentation

If you're feeling stuck on a tricky patient case, the case presentations included in the monthly ECHO sessions can help. By submitting an anonymous patient case presentation, you will have opportunities to present your case and receive interdisciplinary community and specialist recommendations that are designed to be realistic and helpful for patients living with pain. All health care providers are encouraged to submit a case to help expand their learning and improve their practice. To submit a case, fill out this case submission form.

This Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) and the British Columbia Chapter for up to 2 Mainpro+ credits per session. By completing all four parts of each session (including the pre- and post-evaluations), you will receive your CME certificate automatically.
