U.S. Pain Foundation names Michael Schatman, PhD Director of Research
Newly created role is designed to inform public on realities of chronic pain
By: U.S. Pain Foundation
Schatman is a clinical psychologist who has spent the past 30 years working in chronic pain management. He is a leading activist for those with pain, and continues to work with patients clinically on a half-time basis while working as an author, researcher, editor of multiple journals, and national and international lecturer.
In this role, Schatman will lead a team of well-known researchers that will conduct investigations that will emphasize identification of evidence-informed strategies for those living with chronic pain, in an effort to reduce unnecessary suffering by this community. Through this new approach to research, the U.S. Pain Foundation hopes to further influence the perceptions and misconceptions around those living with chronic pain, and change the paradigm for this community with further education of lawmakers, key opinion leaders and the general public.
“Having Michael join the U.S. Pain family will help us give assistance and guidance to our members who live with chronic pain each day,” said Gileno. “Michael will work to distribute the latest research and advancements in pain research, as well as the latest information on access to medications and cutting edge treatments. Additionally, his work will change the conversation to better promote an understanding of the pain community and the challenges we face.”
“I look forward to building on the proven success that Paul and his team at the U.S. Pain Foundation have established”
