New Workgroups to Advance Comprehensive, Integrative Pain Care Beginning in April!

Posted By Katie Duensing, Thursday, March 29, 2018

As a result of feedback from the participants of the Integrative Pain Care Policy Congress, we are beginning three new workgroups to implement focused action steps to advance comprehensive, integrative pain care and address our nation’s challenges with pain, opioid misuse, and mental health.  Below you will find a summary of each workgroup’s first goal, the co-facilitators, and the monthly meeting schedules. If you are interested in participating in one of these workgroups and have not yet signed up, please contact Amy Goldstein.

Improving Access to Quality Pain Care.  This workgroup will begin with a comprehensive analysis of policy and coverage issues as they apply to pain care.  Co-facilitators are Ravi Prasad, PhD, Associate Chief, Stanford University Division of Pain Medicine; and Doug Metz, DC, EVP & Chief Services Officer, American Specialty Health.

A concept outline will be shared in advance of the first meeting to be held on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 7-8AM PST / 8-9AM MST / 9-10AM CST / 10-11AM EST.  Monthly meetings will occur at the same time on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Promoting Comprehensive, Integrative Pain Care. This group will begin with an analysis of successful models of comprehensive, integrative pain care, looking for common components that will inform future goals related to expanding access to this type of care.  Co-facilitators are Steve Stanos, DO, President, American Academy of Pain Medicine; and Kevin Galloway, BSN, MHA, Colonel, US Army (Retired), Board member, Academy of Integrative Pain Management.

A concept outline will be shared in advance of the first meeting to be held on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 from 2-3 PST / 3-4 MST / 4-5 CST / 5-6 EST.  Monthly meetings will occur at the same time on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

Strategic Communication. This group will begin with developing  easy-to-access documents with a consistent look and feel to effectively communicate and build momentum around common language and other outputs, starting with 1) further endorsements of the consensus definition of comprehensive, integrative pain care developed at our first meeting (many of your organizations already have endorsed this); 2) creation of a more robust Integrative Pain Care Policy Congress Blog; and 3) organizing and communicating effectively around the second in-person Integrative Pain Care Policy Congress being planned for November 2018 (announcement coming soon!)  Co-faciliators are Cindy Leyland, Director of Program Operations and PAINS Project Manager for Center for Practical Bioethics; and James Specker, Government & Industry Relations Director, American Massage Therapy Association.

A concept outline will be shared in advance of the first meeting to be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 from 11-12 PST / 12-1 MST / 1-2 CST / 2-3 EST.  Monthly meetings will occur at the same time on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
