Power of Pain Foundation- ADF and Access to Care

 

AZ State Capitol BuildingADF

Power of Pain Foundation recognizes that Abuse Deterrent Formulations are only a step forward
toward drug diversion. We know this isn’t the final answer. It allows an option for patients to
continue to be treated with opioid analgesics and removes many of the barriers involved in non abuse
deterrent medication.

 

POPF Pain Community Needs Assessment Survey

We are not focusing on any one treatment option, we are improving upon the patient/provider
relationship.

The purpose of our survey was to determine who is having trouble getting access to quality care.
who is being dismissed, who is being cared for by a primary physician, who is being sent to pain
management and who is having difficulty receiving ongoing pain care.

We are aware of many individuals who are not receiving proper medication management or treatment
and others who had been receiving care that are now facing obstacles.

Our goal is continued access to care. Our goal is patient empowerment.

Opportunity to join Advocacy Committee

As the Committee Chairwoman for Advocacy, I would like to emphasize the importance of connecting a unified populace for better access to care.

Our community constitutes a commonwealth of patients with various diseases and who are in various stages of their illness. The Power of Pain Foundation
advocates for several different distinctive medical conditions.

I am now seeking applicants from those interested in joining my committee. These are all volunteer positions. Since I am diverse, I prefer those choosing to
work with me to be also. I appreciate diversity and so does the Power of Pain Foundation.

If you are ready to help work on access to care, abuse deterrent formulations, prior authorizations, specialty tier’s, step therapy/fail first and other
issues that we can tackle together, please contact me.

I am passionate about my role as Advocacy Director. I am seeking 7 individuals who aren’t afraid to raise their voice when needed.

1- Legislative and Advocacy Assistant (National)
1- Research (National)
1- CRPS/RSD (National)
2- Neuropathy/Nerve (National)
2- Help oversee my Region. Region 1 (NW) including Alaska, California (Northern), Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming

While a pain related illness with experience and knowledge is a plus, it is not necessary.

Email me: Twinkle.CA@powerofpain.org

With the position you are interested in, Tell me about yourself and how can we help each other to help others?
List any experience. Please don’t over-think it.

Together, we can!
