Background and Objectives

The Internet is increasingly an important resource for both the Pain Medicine physician and the patient. Considerable high-quality information exists within numerous government, university, professional association, and private sites. Large documents, such as patient care guidelines, can be readily retrieved on-line. Search capabilities within websites improve the efficiency of information retrieval. Clinicians may communicate about complex patient management issues via a list-serve, which delivers entire discussions to their E-mail accounts. These multiple resources offer an enriched environment for patient care, education, and research in pain management.
