Event description

Description

Dr. Gardner-Nix is a Chronic Pain Consulting Physician, Department of Anaesthesia, Pain Clinic, St Michael’s Hospital, and an Associate Professor in the Department of Anaesthesia, University of Toronto. She is also on staff at Northumberland Hills Hospital, Cobourg.

She trained in the renowned Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program in the USA in 2001.

She has given many presentations on chronic pain management internationally, and has researched outcomes showing effectiveness of the MBCPMTM courses in pain sufferers for pain and stress. In 2010 she established The NeuroNova Centre for Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management (www.neuronovacentre.com), renamed NeuroNova Centre for Mindful Solutions in 2016 to reflect a broader mandate which includes delivering courses to staff of corporations for stress. NNC creates and publishes materials for the MBCPMTM courses, and trains and accredits new facilitators. Currently MBCPMTM courses are being delivered by a growing number of other health care professionals (including MDs, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers) across Ontario, and in the USA and Australia. Her work was reported on CTV news in April 2013 and on CBC News in December 2012.
