UW Medicine receives $500,000 Purple Heart Service Foundation grant
Date:4/24/2013

The Military Order of the Purple Heart Service Foundation (MOPHSF) and the UW Medicine Division of Pain Medicine are joining forces to assist veterans with treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and acute and chronic pain.

MOPHSF, a membership organization comprised of combat-wounded veterans and recipients of the Purple Heart, has awarded the Division of Pain Medicine a five-year $500,000 grant to develop leading-edge technologies that will help improve care for our veterans suffering from chronic pain, post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury. The funding will also support provider education and training, clinical care guidelines and outcomes-based research. Together, these will equip healthcare providers with the tools necessary to reduce the risk of veteran suicides and deaths, caused in part by accidental overdoses of opioids.

Jim Blaylock, MOPHSF president, said UW Medicine is a natural partner to advance the foundation's mission to provide aid and assistance to American veterans and their families.

"I am proud that we can extend our efforts to helping those veterans with post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury," said Blaylock. "Our association with the UW Medicine, which is on the cutting edge of research and the forefront of teaching medical personnel how to recognize and treat our veterans, will allow the foundation to assist those who have given so much for this country. We are encouraged by UW Medicine's efforts and endorse and support their good work."

David Tauben, acting chief of the Division of Pain Medicine and medical director of the UW Center for Pain Relief, Anesthesia & Pain Medicine, said that home-based pain monitoring tools will help patients and providers better understand the complexities and impact of pain and post-traumatic stress on daily lives.

"In order for providers and patients to effectively manage pain, we need to know more about how pain and pain treatment
