The Partners for Understanding Pain is a consortium, “spearheaded by the American Chronic Pain Association, striving to create greater understanding among health care professionals, individuals and families who are struggling with pain management, working to bring the business community, legislators, and the general public the message that pain is a serious public health issue.”
They work hard advocating for those who live in pain and below, you will find their member list and then the links to each of these supporting organization’s home web-sites.
*Note: this is not a comprehensive list but rather simply those members whose work may, directly, be helpful to individuals living in chronic pain.
Although their partnership is “dedicated to building the understanding and support that can help people with chronic, acute and cancer pain lead better lives”, the member’s list below contains helpful connections to those who have chronic pain for any number of other reasons.
