The INTEGRATE-Pain Initiative represents a pain research Consortium affiliated with the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH is known for supporting various initiatives and consortia aimed at advancing research in different fields, including pain management.

This consortium aimed to likely bring together researchers, clinicians, and other experts from various institutions and disciplines to collaborate on pain-related research. The goal would be to better understand the underlying mechanisms of pain, develop more effective treatments, and improve patient outcomes.

Such an initiative would likely involve a multidisciplinary approach, combining expertise from areas such as neuroscience, pharmacology, psychology, and physical therapy, among others. Research funded by the consortium might focus on a wide range of topics, including chronic pain conditions, acute pain management, opioid use and abuse, non-pharmacological interventions, and disparities in pain care.

Given the significant impact of pain on individuals and society, initiatives like the INTEGRATE-Pain Initiative would be crucial for advancing our understanding of pain and improving the lives of those affected by it.

The INTEGRATE-Pain Initiative therefore undertook a large multidisciplinary international Delphi study from July 2022 to January 2023 to reach consensus on the most critical domains for each of the four pain categories. The results of the study have been published in eClinical Medicine  VOLUME 66, 102340, DECEMBER 2023.

Hereby is reported a summary of the outcomes of this Consensus.
