Michael G. DeGroote National Pain Centre


The Michael G. DeGroote National Pain Centre (MGD NPC) was established in 2010 through a generous gift from Michael G. DeGroote. The centre draws on McMaster’s expertise in evidence-based medicine to identify, collate, review, revise, update and develop clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of chronic pain. Guidelines will then be disseminated, using best practice techniques of knowledge translation.

The mission of the MGD NPC is to improve the management of pain through the dissemination of best practice information.

The vision for the MGD NPC is to be an integral pillar of the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Pain Research and Care; a world leader in resolving the problem of chronic pain through basic science, clinical care and education.
