April 6, 2015: Acute Pain Taxonomy to be Developed with APS and AAPM

ACTTION is very pleased to announce the launch of a collaboration with the American Pain Society and the American Academy of Pain Medicine to develop diagnostic criteria for acute pain conditions. As with the ACTTION-APS chronic pain effort, the goal of this new initiative will be the development of a coordinated and evidence-based taxonomy. A comprehensive acute pain taxonomy is essential so that consistent and accurate diagnoses are used for clinical research and clinical trials, and also to facilitate comparisons across studies for systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
