4. Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management Program is a 13
week series offered by Dr.Jackie Gardner-Nix at St.Michael's Hospital in
Toronto. This program was derived from John Kabat-Zin's work on mindfulness.
This program is delivered via the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) at various PEFHT sites. Attendees learn the principles of mindfulness meditation, the
importance of living in the moment, the power of now, and how these relate to
suffering less pain. Mindfulness assists in remaining calmer and more pain
controlled despite the challenges of everyday life, such as when interacting
with family, friends, colleagues, employers and insurers. This can change the
intensity of pain suffering, both emotional and physical, in a very positive
way. See more at

It is the process in which the programs are taught that make
them effective. Classes are highly participative, where mutual support and
success build the participants' confidence in their ability to manage their
health and maintain active and fulfilling lives.
