AACIPM’s First Symposium Builds Deeper “Community” Among Important Leaders

Leveraging Shared Interest in Advancing Person-Centered Pain Management

On May 13-14, 2020, AACIPM facilitated its first online symposium titled, Innovation & Progress in Person-Centered Pain Management. Over 950 individuals who represented different stakeholder interests, registered for the symposium and about half of those participated across the two days. This symposium included 45 exceptional panelists across the two days. We were so pleased to see the strong retention of viewers over the 8 hours (4 hours on each day), and active engagement through the Zoom Webinar Q&A and Chat features.

Connecting the Dots

A Growing Community of Leaders, Influencers, and Decision-Makers

AACIPM is a grant-funded initiative with a fiscal sponsor, not a separate organization with competing priorities. AACIPM grows stronger as previously unconnected stakeholders unify and align around the shared interest to increase access to comprehensive integrative pain management (CIPM). Each of us plays an important role in this complex puzzle and AACIPM will continue to connect the dots so that coordination of efforts ultimately leads to integration and alignment of key efforts.  Although the concept of alignment and integration is simple, the practical side of galvanizing leaders, influencers and decision-makers around shared goals happens one conversation at a time.

Recordings Available and New Webinars Coming Soon

You can access the recordings of all the symposium sessions here.  Some are now available, and others will be uploaded soon.  Also, watch your inbox for new offerings on topics of interest. If you haven’t provided us with your feedback (which helps to identify our future webinar topics), take this brief survey now in 5-10 minutes.

Your Feedback and Engagement Really Matters

“This was the best-run online webinar I have participated in, and I’ve participated in many over the years. It’s like AACIPM has set up a new base camp on the way to Mount Everest!” — Lt. General (Retired) Eric Schoomaker, an AACIPM Advisory Committee member


“I’m not sure how it happened, but I actually felt like I was part of a real community during the symposium. I missed the hallway conversations that happen at an in-person meeting, but was amazed at the sense of connectedness in this online format.” — Feedback from a presenter

Nearly all (99%) of those who have completed the post-symposium survey reported that they would participate in another educational offering from AACIPM and all reported “Excellent” or “Good” as general feedback about the meeting.

AACIPM will leverage this positive impact and will keep moving forward to advance comprehensive integrative pain management through this multi-stakeholder collaborative work. Please take 5-10 minutes to complete this short survey.  We will use your feedback as a gauge to understand your interests in future offerings and activities.
