Voices for Pain Are Heard in the US US Info

The American Pain Foundation has succeeded in getting approval from the US House of Representative’s Energy and Commerce Committee for a National Pain Care Policy Act. This policy will help to combat pain by allowing the Pain Consortium at the National Institutes of Health in the US to expand their research into the cause and treatments of pain, pain care education and training for healthcare professionals, national public awareness in pain management and authorising an Institute of Medicine conference in pain management. This legislation will now move to the main government house and then the U.S. Senate.
