Chronic pain in America remains underrecognized, underdiagnosed, and undertreated.

This PainTV educational series is designed to address this significant public health problem by educating clinicians who treat patients with chronic pain through a series of short video commentaries that present clinical pearls and demonstrations on specific topics related to chronic pain management.

Collectively, this series aims to raise clinician awareness of the impact of chronic pain; its assessment, treatment, and varied pathophysiologies; and factors that can influence patient functioning and quality of life.

This feature requires the newest version of Flash. You can download it here.
