Presented by:

Lynne Young, RN, PhD
Professor, University of Victoria school of nursing

Lynne Young’s background as an ICU, ER and PAR (patient at risk) nurse first led her to a role as a clinical nurse specialist in acute pain care for a tertiary care hospital. She soon came to realize how much acute care settings were still struggling with acute pain management and set out to address the issue. Working with other health-care professionals she implemented a strategy over the next ten years that included establishing the Pain BC Society, end-of-life and palliative care competencies for undergraduate nursing students and an interprofessional course on pain care at the University of British Columbia.
