Acute Pain Service

Acute Pain Service is a medical field that aims to improve the quality of life of patients and their families facing the serious or life threatening illness. Acute Pain Service care anesthesiologists use their specialized knowledge of pain medication and surgical procedures to help relieve suffering in patients with complex illnesses.

The Acute Pain Service consultation team at UNMH consists of specialized physicians, advanced practice nurses, a social worker, a chaplain and Arts-in-Medicine who work together with the primary medical team to help patients and families control symptoms and help understand treatment options and goals. The team also helps educate current and future clinicians in caring for patients with complex illnesses.
