Abstract: 

This special publication aims to inform health care providers, researchers, policy makers, caregivers, and patients about the recent report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) that calls for overhauling the approach to pain management in the United States. The report notes that while pain affects approximately one-third of Americans - and exacts a huge toll from society in terms of morbidity, mortality, disability, demands on the health care system, and economic burden - it remains widely undertreated. The report provides an overview of needs for care, education, and research, and lays out a blueprint for transforming pain care. This issue of From Publication to Practice provides a high level summary of the IOM call to action and identifies recommendations for advancing pain care, education, and research. We believe that this latest issue in our From Publication to Practice series will assist you in identifying and responding to opportunities to improve pain management.

Educational objectives:
