National Pain Care Policy Act of 2003Posted by Sharon W on 5/22/03 at 09:02 (119609)
This bill, H.R.1863, introduced April 29, 2003 to the House of Representatives, by Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) is an important step forward for those of us with chronic pain. It recognizes how important pain is in health care and acknowledges that pain is a critical and so far unanswered problem that needs to be dealt with.
Here's a link for the bill that was introduced (on Adobe Acrobat):
It's important for those of us who care about this issue to contact our congressmen and let them know how we feel.

Whoa - that's a whole lot of reading. I'll come back to it later, though, Sharon, because it looks like it's really important. Thanks for telling us about it!
