Chronic pain problem is one of the most common symptoms for which a patient visits a primary health-care practitioner in India. Pain management is a rapidly growing specialty of medicine concerned with the prevention of pain, and the evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of persons in pain. Pain as a specialty has grown enormously in the last decade and is being recognized at the national level by the government, medical fraternity, and community at large. The time has come for the formation of a uniform, high-quality, standardized, multidisciplinary pain education, and training framework which would include health-care providers from the grass root level to the specialized pain consultants.
