State Pain Policy

To help ensure policymakers and others formally tasked with the responsibility of making public policy decisions are well informed about the their decisions have on people who live with pain and the providers who care for them, PAINS has developed an inaugural Policy Brief (see Tools below) intended to provide balanced overview of the topic. Future issues will more singularly cover in greater detail some of the more complex policy conundrums.
