Our Mission

The mission of the Academy of Integrative Pain Management is to improve the lives of people with pain by advancing a person centered, integrative model of pain care through evidence-guided education, credentialing, and advocacy.

AIPM defines integrative pain management as a model of care that is patient-centered; considers the whole person; encourages healthful lifestyle changes as part of the first line of treatment to restore wellness; is evidence-based and brings together all appropriate therapeutic approaches and clinicians to reduce pain and achieve optimal health and healing; and encourages a team approach.

We have a new website! Please visit IntegrativePainManagement.org to learn more about our organization.

My vision really is to make pain education available to all clinicians throughout the country.... who are taking care of chronic pain patients on the front lines.

Joanna Katzman, MD, MSPH and President of the Board of DIrectors of the Academy of Integrative Pain Management, shares her vision.
