To Promote, Enhance, and Advance Pain Management in Animals
The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management is a multi-disciplinary organization that seeks to promote the acquisition and dissemination of cross-species knowledge related to the biology and clinical treatment of pain in animals.
The Academy seeks to:
- Provide forums for communication among all interested parties of knowledge concerning the biology and treatment of animal pain
- Provide continuing education in the area of pain recognition and treatment
- Establish a process whereby veterinarians with a special interest in the area of animal pain management can meet a set of prescribed objectives that will ultimately lead to certification in the management of animal pain.
- Promote humane, scientific investigation into the biology of animal pain and the assessment of the efficacy of defined treatment modalities.
