As the transformation of pain management continued over the last 20 years in national medicine, there has been a growing pain management “community of practice” across the Military Health System , Veterans Health Administration, US Public Health Service, and elsewhere in Federal Medicine.
Several pain management professional organizations have established Shared Interest Groups or “SIGs” for their members who are part of Federal Medicine. These SIGs allow members to share information about best practices, research, national initiatives, and opportunities to participate in larger organizational lines of effort.
