Improve US chronic pain care

The Consumer Pain Advocacy Task Force is launching a petition to urge the Obama Administration to implement the National Pain Strategy. In order to have a response from the White House, 100,000 people must sign by August 11th.

Effective pain management is being attacked by new regulations and is interfering with appropriate patient-healthcare provider decision making. The National Pain Strategy (NPS) is a federal blueprint for a better future for people with chronic pain to increase discovery research for new treatments, pain education, and insurance coverage and to recognize chronic pain as a disease. Currently, the NPS is housed at the Department of Health & Human Services, but the Administration has not implemented or funded it. There is a chance that the NPS could be ignored and not funded. We NEED the NPS, and the White House needs to hear from YOU. Your voice matters.  Sign the White House Petition at bit.ly/nps-whp and share on social media with #ISpeakForPain to encourage your friends to sign by August 11! We need 100,000 voices to be heard on Capitol Hill. Together we make a difference! Learn more at YourVoiceMatters.info.

Register to receive an email reminder to sign the White House Petition on July 13.
