The Patient Alliance in Nova Scotia (PAiNS) – registration in process – was created to help give a patient perspective to the continuing problems faced in health care.

It will – hopefully – go beyond the passive approach of offering only patient stories, to a more activist role of identifying specific problems and issues and offering patient solutions from the position of those of us at the pointy end of the needle.

Note that PAiNS is focused on proven treatments as outlined at https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/
