Advancing innovation and safety in pain education, patient care and research

The overall goal of PAMI® is advancement of multimodal, safe pain management in healthcare systems to improve outcomes and reduce opioid risk. Multimodal management includes a variety of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions to address opioid stewardship, discharge planning, and safe pain management. PAMI includes a focus on older adults and other high-risk populations such as pediatrics, prehospital (EMS), and trauma patients. The project encompasses provider and patient education, quality improvement and research.

PAMI Objectives:

  • Develop, evaluate, and disseminate PAMI products and toolkits through existing and new collaborations with multidisciplinary experts and stakeholder organizations to promote safe pain management and opioid stewardship.
  • Develop new pain-related research initiatives with emphasis on older adults and other high risk populations, patient-centered pain education, nonopioid or nonpharmacologic interventions, and pain pharmacogenomics and biomarkers.
