THE NATIONAL PAIN CARE ACT BROCHURE
Print and distribute
9/07/04 - There's never been a Pain Care Bill introduced in the Congress before now. That's because the undertreatment of pain is a very serious problem in the country today.
The FACTS are:
75 million Americans suffer serious pain annually:
50 million of those endure serious chronic pain annually (pain lasting 6 months or more)
25 million experience acute pain (from injuries, accidents, surgeries, etc)
Of those numbers, only 1 in 4 patients received adequate treatment.
Also as startling, this Pain Act, which was introduced in 2002 by Rep. Mike Rogers (MI), is still in desperate need of co-sponsors.
That's where 'The Pain Act Brochure' will prove a useful tool; an excellent way to "locally" spread the word about this important piece of legislation that is so urgently needed.
Please print and distribute everywhere.
