AAPM Foundation Advances Pain Medicine Education and Research

Since 2011, the AAPM Foundation has worked in conjunction with the American Academy of Pain Medicine to provide innovative and wide-reaching educational programs that improve patient outcomes, elevate standards of implementation in the treatment of pain, and fund research to advance the field.

The Foundation envisions access to optimal pain care that improves the functionality and quality of life for patients with pain, significantly mitigating the widespread problem of pain in the United States. These efforts, in concert with other leading organizations, will lead to promoting quality pain education and training for all physicians, conducting research into the causes and treatment of pain conditions and disease, and supporting best practices to optimize patient outcomes and ensure a comprehensive, integrated, and coordinated system of care.
