About NHPCA - Nebraska Pain Initiative

Nebraska Pain Initiative

The Nebraska Hospice and Palliative Care Association's vision is that No Nebraskan Lives in Pain or Dies Badly. Because people in pain have a right to timely, appropriate pain care and because 76.5 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, pain education is a significant part of the work of NHPCA, implemented through the Nebraska Pain Initiative. The Nebraska Pain Initiative is a network of organizations working to address pain issues including fears, education-related problems, difficulties of pain itself, and systems-related problems.

Nebraska's Pain Initiative is a part of the Alliance of State Pain Initiatives (ASPI), a group of state-based Pain Initiative organizations that work to remove the barriers that impede pain relief through education, advocacy and institutional improvement.
