Pain Awareness Month is a time when various organisations work together to raise public awareness of issues in the area of pain and pain management. The initiative was introduced by the American Chronic Pain Association under the Partners for Understanding Pain banner in 2001.
This year, the International Alliance of Patient Organizations and International Pain Management Network joins the initiative to bring pain to the forefront of the international community. Raise awareness by getting involved. Talk to your family, friends and healthcare team and help create greater understanding of pain.
