from The president...

Wasan Ajay

2020 has been an unprecedented year, with the COVID-19 pandemic impacting every aspect of our professional and personal lives. For us in the pain medicine field – this public health crisis came as we continue to combat the persisting public health problems of chronic pain and the opioid epidemic.

I am proud of our specialty for rising to meet these challenges in order to continue delivering care through ingenuity, commitment, and grit. The pandemic has shown an even brighter light on why multimodal approaches are crucial to the treatment of acute and chronic pain, and no other medical specialty has as much command of these modalities as we do.

AAPM 2021 will offer us the much-needed opportunity to convene and share what we have learned and experienced this past year as we continue to reshape the delivery of pain care in a post-COVID-19 world.

Ajay Wasan, MD MSc | AAPM President
