In partnership with the Veterans Health Administration, in 2010, the Department of Defense/Veterans Health Administration Pain Management Task Force Final Report recommended a comprehensive pain management plan.

This article reports our first-year FRP results at William Beaumont Army Medical Center IPMC.
