FAMILIES FOR INTRACTABLE PAIN RELIEF
This is the Veract Intractable Pain and Palliative Care Clinic’s support and advocacy group. 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.
No one should be left to suffer in pain…to deny meaningful pain care is cruel, inhumane and tantamount to torture.
Our mission is to advocate until every patient with Intractable Pain is able to access treatment for their complex medical conditions with a highly qualified physician who can treat them, in every state.
