Paice added that the Clinical Centers of Excellence Awards also support the ongoing advocacy mission of APS for multidisciplinary pain care. "The awards honor pain care teams for delivering optimal and exemplary care for those with myriad chronic-pain disorders, post-surgical pain, trauma-induced pain and pain from cancer and other life-threatening conditions," Paice added.

A recurring quality of leading pain programs, according to Paice, is success in helping patients enhance overall function and quality of life. "Combining cognitive-behavioral and physical therapies with medications and other approaches is the major advantage of the multidisciplinary approach. We treat the whole person, not just the pain.

Among the achievements of CCOE recipients recognized by APS, include:

-- Creation and maintenance of a huge pain patient data base, derived from

individual patients or groups over time. The database was instrumental

in landing a $10 million grant to build a palliative care facility.
