We are the Veract Intractable Pain and Palliative Care Clinic’s support and advocacy group. We are the families and care partners of our loved one who is living with severe, intractable pain. A major goal of treatment is to introduce our rare and relatively rare patients to others in a similar situation. Self-help and group support is deemed a critical element of our treatment efforts. The vast majority of our patients require family support, and the families need to support each other. The functions of our support and advocacy group include the following: (1) assist others with administrative and clinical issues; (2) give advice and guidance to the clinic; (3) assist a patient in crisis; (4) recommend patient rules for the clinic; and (5) advocate and educate to outside agencies and organizations.
