Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Advance science in regional anesthesia, acute and chronic pain by supporting researchers through grants, increased visibility in our meeting and research and by helping explain research findings to lay media outlets.

Educate and inform regional anesthesiologists and pain physicians on innovations and advancements of regional anesthesiology, acute and chronic pain medicine.

Develop practice advisories and guidelines that will inform practitioners about issues with regional anesthesiology, acute and chronic pain medicine.

Develop future leaders in regional anesthesia and pain medicine by providing faculty development opportunities at our meetings and through enduring educational pieces.

Provide practice management resources so that physicians can spend more time with patients rather than the administrative functions.

Advocate for patient access to proven pain therapies to appropriate regulatory agencies and third-party payers.

We are transitioning our scientific journal, Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine from 6 issues in 2017, to 8 journals in 2018 and 12 issues in 2019. This will allow us to expand the amount of peer-reviewed articles we are able to publish.

Our practice management are developing quick resources to serve as quick overviews of practice issues and are coordinating webinars on more complex practice management issues like negotiation.

We are working with the CDC, FDA and Evidence Street to provide education and references related to pain therapies.

Over 282 volunteers are helping us fulfill our mission by serving as course and meeting faculty, writing peer reviewed articles, producing webinars and podcasts to inform our field, the broader healthcare community and the public.

We can see that our guidelines are having a positive impact. For example our guideline on Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity has resulted in a drop of reportable incidents to near zero.
However, the largest indicator that we are effectively relieving the global burden of pain would be adequate pain relief to return to a functional status and the elimination of the opioid epidemic. This will take quite a bit of work by ASRA and similar focused medical societies, but we are committed to this work.
