What our customers are saying

Thank you very much for all of the fantastic pain education you produce. I find all of your research, articles, books, and email news letters to be extremely helpful in education in pain management. I am a RN, pain resource nurse and a team facilitator. I also educate new nurse grads in our nurse residency classes in pain management twice a year. I have received many compliments from students who I have given the PainEDU Manuals to in the past and would like to offer these excellent educational manuals to our future classes."

- Registered Nurse

I encourage all our pain resource nurses to read the articles on PainEDU.org. It's a great jumping off point for them to begin increasing their knowledge of pain management and build their skills. I'm also strongly encouraging that each of our incoming internal medicine residents receive a copy of the PainEDU Manual and register for PainEDU."

I want to thank you for doing such a great job in relaying the most reliable information that is always current and accurate. As an owner of a pain management clinic, it is very easy to get wrapped up in all of the insanity surrounding this field of medicine and your publication brings it all back to the true clinical specialty that it is."
