National Pain Care Policy Act of 2009 (H.R. 756)

For many of our clients, pain is a primary disabling condition, whatever the underlying cause. That is why we applaud any research efforts related to pain management.

The U.S. House of Representative’s Energy and Commerce Committee approved the National Pain Care Policy Act of 2009 (H.R. 756). The legislation will now move to the full House for consideration and then travel to the U.S. Senate.
If signed, the National Pain Care Policy Act of 2009 would work to combat pain by authorizing a Pain Consortium at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to expand research on causes and treatments for pain; providing comprehensive pain care education and training for healthcare professionals; creating a national public awareness campaign on pain management; and by authorizing an Institute of Medicine conference on pain management.
