The Burden of Pain
Pain is a distinctive characteristic of many chronic conditions, including diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. It is estimated that more than half of Americans live with some form of chronic pain, the causes of which can range widely—from injuries to the natural course of aging. While many patients cope with the discomfort associated with painful conditions, diminished quality of life becomes an important consideration as duration of pain increases, particularly if the pain is not adequately managed. Where We Come In
PainKnowledge.org is a one-stop repository for print materials, educational resources, and physician tools across the broad spectrum of pain assessment, treatment, and management approaches. Unique site offerings include:
- Dynamic Slide Library featuring fully referenced downloadable slides on such topics as epidemiology, assessment, treatment options, and more
- Physician Tools, including the Opioid Analgesia Tool Kit and the Pain Activity and Tracking Log, for quick reference
- Patient Education Materials that augment patient management and improve patients&srquo; and caregivers&srquo; understanding of pain-causing conditions
- Current Literature featuring synopses of cutting-edge clinical trials and data
PainKnowledge.org also hosts content developed for the National Initiative on Pain Control® (NIPC®), an integrated education initiative that provides clinical tools and information to assist healthcare professionals in improving management techniques and, ultimately, outcomes among their patients with pain.
All resources and programs hosted on PainKnowledge.org are continuously evaluated by our Steering Committee, an expert multidisciplinary team of specialists, researchers, and practicing physicians in pain management. The Editorial Board includes experts in the pain management field.
