In the shadow of the current opioid epidemic, nurse practitioners (NPs) are leading the charge in pain management solutions, innovation and best practices. The Pain Management Specialty Practice Group (SPG) offers a unique opportunity to interactively collaborate with colleagues who share interest or clinical expertise in pain management. As an SPG member, you’ll have access to a cutting-edge, online forum where you can engage in discussions, document sharing and knowledge exchange with fellow NPs. Come learn, share and help progress the development of theory and practice in pain management.
In the midst of our nation’s current opioid epidemic, it is imperative we, as pain specialists, stay informed and up to date on evidence-based clinical practices. Sharing information and treatment modalities is essential in effectively treating pain, especially in an era of transparency and patient satisfaction scores. I am honored to be co-chair of the Pain Management SPG and facilitate these relationships across the U.S.
I am so excited to be serving in the role of co-chair for the Pain Management SPG. I have worked in pain management since 2000, the last 15 years as an NP in an interventional pain private practice in NJ. It is a specialty that is near and dear to my heart. In addition to being certified in pain management through ASPMN, I am board certified through AHNCC as an Advanced Practice Holistic Nurse and Nurse Coach.
Caring for patients with chronic pain impacts nurse practitioners in every specialty. As such, I welcome all pain management NPs as well as those who may be in other specialties but are dedicated to decreasing patient suffering. Through the sharing of evidence and experience, this group can serve not only as a source of excellent education but of creativity and support as we care for this vulnerable population. Welcome to the group!
Join this growing SPG community and engage with other like-minded NPs with an interest in pain management. Take part in interactive discussion and debate, gain support and explore Q&As and always be on top of the latest available news, education and information.
