  • Promote safe, effective pain control
  • Educate both healthcare professionals and NH citizens about pain
  • Advocate for public awareness
  • Provide current information about services within New Hampshire

The NHPCO website provides tip sheets and general information on how to manage pain and how to use narcotics safely, amongst others. 

The American Chronic Pain Association website is full of helpful information including techniques and toolkits.

The US Pain Foundation provides a comprehensive website about chronic pain and how to live with it.
