Toronto Academic Pain Medicine Institute (TAPMI) is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary academic pain program serving as the hub for chronic pain care in Toronto.
The treatment and management of pain is complex, requiring a wide range of programs and services to help those in pain function. TAPMI is created by the five major pain centres in downtown Toronto coming together to share care, so that across the five sites, patients have access to an interdisciplinary team of chiropractors, doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, pharmacists, physiotherapists, psychologists and social workers.
The TAPMI Network
Once your family doctor or care provider refers you to TAPMI, you will be triaged centrally and sent to the most appropriate pain program(s) and/or service(s) within the TAPMI network that best meets your care needs.
