Toronto (Dec. 5, 2000) - Toronto Rehab was a big winner at this year's Ontario Hospital Association’s Annual Convention and Exhibition. The Healthcare Papers National Best Practices Award went to Toronto Rehab’s project An Interprofessional Chronic Non-Cancer Initiative.

The winning poster dealt with Chronic Non-Cancer Pain (CNP), a complex clinical phenomenon, which is often unrecognized and undertreated. Heather Campbell, Vice President, Professional Practice at Toronto Rehab, said, "Prior to Toronto Rehab’s guidelines being developed, there were no structures in place for the assessment, management, and ongoing evaluation of CNP."

Campbell added, "Toronto Rehab is doing award-winning work in the area of evidence-based pain management."

Editors of Hospital Quarterly selected Toronto Rehab's poster for its originality, relevance and its practical application to healthcare. More than 70 submissions were posted at the OHA's Annual Convention and Exhibition for review by more than 6,000 delegates.

The OHA/Hospital Quarterly Best Practices Display Awards recognize initiatives that demonstrate excellence and innovation that assists in the delivery of patient care services.
