National physician organization supports Capps-Rogers Bill at today's congressional briefing
Date:11/8/2007

--(GLENVIEW, Ill.) Representing the interests of pain patients in light of federal pain management policy reform, leading pain expert and former President of the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) will brief congress today on the National Pain Care Policy Act of 2007.

The crisis of under-treated pain extends well beyond an issue of comfort for those who suffer. It is now a social issue with major economic and political ramifications, says AAPM representative, Scott M. Fishman, MD, in his Congressional briefing. Fishman is a past president of AAPM and a professor of anesthesiology and chief of the division of pain medicine at the University of California, Davis.

The National Pain Care Policy Act of 2007, also referred to as the Capps-Rogers bill, is strongly supported by the AAPM. The bill calls for a Congressional finding for improved pain care research, education, access, and care are national health care priorities and appropriates funding.

Todays Congressional briefing, National Pain Policy: Tackling Barriers to Proper Pain Management, will help Congress better understand the immediate need for federal pain policy reform.

Co-sponsored by Representatives Michael Rogers (R-MI) and Lois Capps (D-CA), the Capps-Rogers bill provides for a number of actions considered necessary to delivering appropriate pain care. The bill permanently establishes the Pain Consortium office at the National Institute of Health (NIH). The office will convene an annual conference and coordinate pain research, training, and related activities across all NIH programs and institutes. The bill also authorizes an Institute of Medicine conference on pain care; pain care education and training programs based on best practices; and an educational outreach and public awareness program on pain management.
