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 nonpharmacologic 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.
