    You post is several months old....but if you haven't already found it try going to the American Society for Pain Management Nursing site ( www.aspmn.org) and they have an email list serve that has thousands of pain management specialists throughout the North American continent on it. They are usually very willing to share all sorts of information.

    Dear Maggie,
    I am desperately in need of your help. We r in the process of starting up a pain center and was assigned to write a policy and procedure for scope of service from scratch. Would it be too much for u to allow me to see the policies and procedures that u came up with?

    Hi guys and gals,

    I too have been dealt the wonderful job of developing a policy and procedure manual for a new pain management center. I was hoping some of you might be willing to share some of your information - why reinvent the wheel? I would be most appreciative! This is a new role for me and have never quite tackled a task like this before. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can email me at res05bc0@verizon.net. Thanks so much!!

    Pain management is my passion in nursing. Some of the best information I have received has been from other pain management nurses. Go to the American Society for Pain Management Nursing website www.aspmn.org and click on 'organization'. Then go down the list to position papers. You will find a wealth of informaiton there. Some positions papers are written jointly with the American Pain Society. The other thing is that you should purchase the Pain Management book by Chris Pasero and Margo McCaffery. They cover EVERYTHING you would ever want to know. They also have extensive bibs at the end of their chapters which will provide you with evidence based material to back up the ifnormaton. Lastly - become a member of ASPMN and join the listserve. You can put out a request for anything you want and pain management professionals from all over the US and Canada will be happy to share policies/procedures etc. I have learned tons from just reading the listserve. Good luck.

    Pain Assessment and Pharmacologic Management is the name of Chris & Margo's book. As I said before, they cover everything.

    Hi all,

    I am now working for a pain management practice and was tasked to create a policies and procedures manual. In my search I came across this thread and thought someone may still be monitoring it. As Dan needed, I also need Policies and Procedures for the clinical staff and the admin staff plus an employee manual.

    Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much!
