WHY I CHOSE PAIN MANAGEMENT

My main goal is to practice effective management of chronic pain to limit its interference with patients’ sleep, work, physical and emotional functioning. As chronic pain has a multidimensional impact on patients’ lives, I would like to practice multidimensional approach towards its management. I am motivated to
improve my knowledge and skills of interventional pain management. I would like to help patients by engaging them in decision making and promoting self-management to improve their self confidence in the chronic pain battle.
