Thank you for visiting The National Pain Foundation’s website.

The National Pain Foundation’s mission is to transform the way pain is fundamentally understood, assessed and treated. The Pain Foundation will achieve this mission through three key areas:

  • Education and Awareness: author and disseminate pain-related peer-reviewed journal supplements globally, develop stories and videos, leverage relationships with networks to increase awareness about gaps in pain research, diagnosis and treatment.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: convene stakeholders to benchmark best practices and identify gaps in the systems of care, educate and influence policy and access to treatment, improve the understanding and diagnosis of pain and identify cures.
  • Data and Research: develop the first-ever registry on pain built with advanced data collection tools in collaboration with the world’s leading experts, researchers and practitioners in pain to create quality standards and surface findings.
