Rational Pain Care is an organization devoted to helping Emergency Department staff treat chronic pain patients in an appropriate and effective manner, while refusing to contribute to the long term health deterioration associated with repeated and unregulated narcotic administration. We work with physicians, nurses, administrators and directors to increase chronic pain education, providing a system of care that is compassionate, efficient and sustainable.
