Facts and Studies on Pain Management

  • Pain patients are very interested in additional information about how to manage
  • Information about how to manage, treat and otherwise cope with their pain.
  • Offering hope, pain management information, referrals and treatment options are welcomed. (A 2007 survey conducted by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and the American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA)).
  • A 2002 study by The National Health Care advisory board found that only 36% of hospitals across the nation maintain pain management programs. Today's technology has increased surgery survivors and a larger elderly population over the last 10 years. The introduction of new procedures has proven to enhance the lives of those suffering from chronic pain.
  • According to a Los Angeles Times article (Marsa, 8/2/01), several barriers to effective pain management still exist. The healthcare industry has been slow to recognize the substantial cost effectiveness of a pain management program. Challenges imposed by Medicare remain a barrier as well.
