American Pain Society Accepting Applications for Clinical Centers of Excellence in Pain Management Awards
Date:11/20/2008

GLENVIEW, Ill., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Again next year, the American Pain Society (APS), http://www.ampainsoc.org, will honor the country's outstanding pain care programs in its acclaimed Clinical Centers of Excellence in Pain Management Awards Program. APS is accepting awards submissions until Dec. 14, 2008.

The Clinical Centers of Excellence in Pain Management Awards Program honors forward-thinking teams of healthcare professionals who are satisfying unmet critical needs in pain management within their communities.

"Effective, high quality pain management involves the talents and expertise of health care professionals who appreciate and understand the complex array of clinical, psychological, social and emotional variables that pain patients deal with every day," said APS President Charles E. Inturrisi, PhD, professor of pharmacology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York. "The awards, therefore, honor pain-care teams for overcoming tough challenges to deliver excellent care for those with chronic-pain disorders, post-surgical pain, trauma-induced pain and pain from cancer and other life-threatening conditions," he said.

Inturrisi added that the Clinical Centers of Excellence Awards also support the ongoing advocacy mission of APS to promote the benefits of multidisciplinary pain care.

APS initiated the Clinical Centers of Excellence in Pain Management Awards in 2006. Any U.S. multidisciplinary clinical program that provides direct patient care and is primarily focused on the treatment of pain is eligible to apply. Nominations will be accepted through Dec. 14, 2008, and winners will be announced by the end of the first quarter. The APS awards will be presented at a gala dinner at the APS Annual Scientific Meeting in San Diego on May 7, 2009.
