New National Pain Strategy Released

The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health released a National Pain Strategy. The Strategy outlines the Federal government’s first coordinated plan for reducing the burden of chronic pain that affects millions of Americans and is a roadmap toward achieving a system of care in which all people receive appropriate, high-quality and evidence-based care for pain. 

The Strategy outlines steps to improve provider education on pain management practices and overcome barriers to improve the quality of pain care for vulnerable, stigmatized and underserved Americans.
