Nutrition in Pain Management: Adequate Nutrition is a Basic Premise of Good Health and Pain Relief (SIG)


Current Chair/Board Champion:

Robert Bonakdar, MD

Co-chair:
Nancy Cotter, MD

Number of members:
41

Goals of SIG in 2017:
- A potential “nutrition toolkit” may be a goal for this SIG—a compilation of ways a clinic could bring nutrition education to its patients.
- Participants will gather handouts, demonstrations, and other materials, and post them online so that pain clinicians can easily provide point-of-care resources

Focus of meeting:
- This group discussed how to make nutrition interventions in the pain clinic feasible, especially when access and coverage may not be ideal.
- Participants noted several novel programs, including the use of subsidized farmers’ markets, educational “field trips” to supermarkets, and an anti-inflammatory diet cooking class.

Next steps/meeting/conference call:
Teleconferences, followed by online discussions and postings to a list serve
