UF Researchers Receive Funding to Address Pain in Older Adults

University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville researchers were awarded a Florida Blue Foundation 2019 Quality of Patient Care Grant for $275,000 to implement a three-year project addressing pain management in older adults in Northeast Florida. The project is named the Aging and Integrative Pain Assessment and Management Initiative, or AI-PAMI. The work is an expansion on the existing Pain Assessment and Management Initiative, established in 2014 by Phyllis Hendry, M.D., a professor of emergency medicine and pediatrics.

The comprehensive AI-PAMI program will include focus groups to gather insights from the target audience to inform the content and format of provider courses and a workshop series for patients ages 50 and older on integrative treatment options for pain. Planned topics include aromatherapy, yoga, mindfulness, virtual reality and more.
