This educational brief is a product of the Pain Action Alliance to Implement a National Strategy (PAINS) and the Center for Practical Bioethics. Special thanks to Mark Collen for the use of his artwork for the cover image.

The Policy & Educational Brief Series is designed as a tool for PAINS members to support their work to improve pain policy. In the spirit of the alliance, the Brief is designed as an “open document” so any member organization or individual can brand it with their name and contact information. The back page of the brief is designed with a space marked “This copy is made available to you by:” for easy personalization.

Everyone can download a master electronic copy. Hard copies of the latest issue can be ordered in a package of 10 or 20 for free and there is a flat rate mailing cost of $5.00. If you want larger quantities, please contact us.
