TCAPP was founded by families of children who are effected by chronic neuropathic pain disease. All of the founding families children suffer from RSD/CRPS (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/ Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) and many suffer from multiple pain conditions, such as EDS (Hypermobility Syndrome), muscle spasms, migraines, abdominal migraines, and painful GI issues.

Dealing with pain is hard for anyone, and pain can quickly overtake your life. When a child is affected with pain, it affects not only them, but the family as well. In addition, pain is poorly misunderstood in adults, and VERY misunderstood in children. This results in a complex maze of navigating the medical system, the school system, and adds to the everyday struggles of growing up, even into early adulthood.

The Coalition Against Pediatric Pain (TCAPP) is an organization committed to supporting and uniting families affected by pediatric pain, advocating for children in pain by increasing awareness of their needs, educating others regarding their long-term consequences of pediatric pain, funding research dedicated to pediatric pain conditions and providing sources to families and professionals.

Welcome to the Foundation for Ethics in Pain Care. We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving pain care in the United States through returning control of the discipline to patients and their health care providers. Recent decades have witnessed the usurpation of control by special interest groups that we believe are not particularly interested in the amelioration of human suffering. FEPC represents a wide range of stakeholders invested in seeing pain care become more efficacious. Through education, research, and advocacy, the "business" of pain medicine will hopefully return to its noble (and more effective) roots of a "profession".

I’m Cristina Powell. In 1988, when I was four days old, I was adopted from Lima, Peru. At fifteen months, I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and a movement disorder... not expected to walk or talk... thankfully, I do both!I first started painting in sixth grade... my art teacher discovered my talent and made it come alive. When I look at each painting, I can’t believe it’s my very own artwork! I’m impressed to see how much I can do, including making others happy, like my friends at the retirement homes. I also like to write verses for my cards and special words to comfort people.

Welcome to Prescribe Responsibly. Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC, have partnered with leading pain management and other experts to develop this site and provide healthcare professionals with a practical resource of information about the appropriate prescribing of opioid analgesics for patients with acute and chronic pain.

 

As many as 50 million American women live with one or more neglected chronic pain conditions. For the majority of these women, our health care system offers frustratingly little help. Too many women face neglect, dismissal and discrimination.

The government and private sector have shortchanged research on these conditions, and as a result, they are poorly understood. Health care professionals receive inadequate training on the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, and effective evidence-based treatments are lacking. In addition, there is growing evidence of a discriminatory pattern in the medical care given to women with chronic pain.

Our campaign is working to change this.

The Campaign to End Chronic Pain in Women aims to improve the quality of women’s lives by raising awareness of chronic pain conditions that disproportionately impact women, as well as the neglect, dismissal and discrimination faced by women suffering from chronic pain.

What happens when your ability to execute your art is challenged by health issues? Where do you go from there? How do you adapt and make the transition to a new situation? How can you continue to create?

These are the questions artist and educator Joel Levitt asked himself when he was confronted with a rare spinal condition that compromised his fine motor skills and left him unable to create as in the past.

As Joel fought hard and regained about 60% of the use of his hands, his creative energy did not go to waste. To learn more go to www.artistsintransition.org
