The Ethics Special Interest Group will focus on ethical issues pertaining to the practice of pain management. Group members will be provided opportunities, through the listserv and at the Annual Meeting, to discuss common ethical concerns that may arise when working with individuals living with pain. Recent topics have included the use of marijuana in pain management, ethical imperatives of pain education, and research ethics. The aim of this SIG is to provide a platform for members to think critically about new and ongoing ethical issues that stem from pain management and treatment.
