EMPainline is a resource for those striving to improve our understanding of pain and its management in the emergency department. Our goal is to close the gap between existing knowledge and practice as well as to nurture professional growth within the emergency medicine pain community.  By improving access to practice and research resources, and by building a network of emergency medicine practitioners, educators and researchers dedicated to this goal, we will strive to continuously improve the experience of people with pain who seek care in our emergency departments. This site provides multiple resources for better understanding pain management in the emergency department. You must sign in to LinkedIn to view this page.
