LIVE—Without Pain Campaign dispels myths about pain and empowers consumers

Learning the truth about pain and what can be done to manage pain is the focus of NHPCO's Caring Connections new campaign, LIVE—Without Pain.

Physical pain is only one aspect of suffering. Emotional and psychological suffering is also an important factor that must be considered.

Hospice and palliative care professionals, experts in helping patients and families cope with pain, know that pain can take away peace of mind, comfort, enjoyment, and most of all hope.

The campaign, to be officially launched at next week's Management and Leadership Conference, was developed in partnership between the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s Caring Connections and Purdue Pharma L.P.
