The NIH Pain Consortium holds their annual symposium to highlight new and exciting advances in pain research, featuring work done through NIH support. This year’s theme will be "Integrated Self-Management Strategies for Chronic Pain". This theme is relevant to recommendations in the IOM Report, "Relieving Pain in America", which recommends the promotion and enablement of self-management of pain. Session topics will include: Self-Management Strategies in Community Health Care Settings; Tailored Self-Management Strategies for Patients and Caregivers; and Predictors and Indicators of Outcomes in Integrated Self-Management Strategies. A poster session will include a broad selection of current pain research findings presented by young investigators. Members of the extramural scientific community, the NIH scientific community, health care providers, and the public are invited to attend.
