The International Pain Management Network is a group devoted to advancing awareness, understanding, and management of pain care throughout the world. To improve pain care globally, we must understand the problems you face as well as attitudes about pain where you live. We need your help.
We have developed a survey to gain a better understanding how pain is assessed, treated and viewed by others. The survey will take about ten minutes to complete. Thank you for your help. Please click here to begin the survey.
Care giving can be very difficult at times. However, there are ways to deal with the situation.
