The Jockey Club School of Public Health and Primary Care of the Faculty of Medicine at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has received a generous donation of HK$12 million from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust (the Trust) for the establishment of a public health programme namely “CUHK-Jockey Club Pain Relief Project for the Seniors”.
The three-year project, officially launched in January 2019, aims to promote relief measures for chronic pain in the elderly and raise public awareness of this issue through service, health education and research. The project is designed for people aged 60 or above who have had chronic pain for three months or longer to provide them with service, health education and research.
The allied health team led by Prof. Regina SIT, Director of this project, has announced their findings and their new round of participants’ recruitment in a press conference on 14 January 2020. Please visit CPRO website for the official press release (CHI | ENG).
