What is Pain Management? (i) the systematic study of clinical and basic science and its application for the reduction of pain and suffering; (ii) the blending of tools, techniques and principles taken from the discrete healing art disciplines and reformulated as a holistic application for the reduction of pain and suffering; and (iii) a newly emerging discipline emphasizing an interdisciplinary approach with a goal of reduction of pain and suffering. -American Academy of Pain Management
