About Pain

The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as being “An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with, or resembling that associated with, actual or potential tissue damage.” Pain is very personal and subjective. Unlike fever, in which a thermometer can actually show if your temperature is elevated, there is no objective way to measure the pain you are experiencing.

Get Involved

Any kind of involvement is greatly appreciated, and even a simple contribution can make a difference. In fact, there are several ways to get involved at the AQDC:


and Conferences

The AQDC regularly presents webinar conferences and organizes events that will potentially contribute to the well-being of people with chronic pain. The association frequently announces stakeholder’s conferences and activities within the continuum of chronic pain in Quebec.


All of our activities are currently hold in virtual mode. As soon as it is safe for everyone, we will go back to our in-person support groups, conferences and other events.
