Title of Collaborative Activity:

Interagency Pain Research Coordinating Committee (IPRCC)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The initial charge to the committee includes, 1) develop a summary of major advances in pain care research supported by Federal Agencies relevant to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of pain; 2) identify critical gaps and duplications in basic and clinical pain research across Federal Agencies; 3) make recommendations on how best to disseminate information on pain care; and 4) make recommendations on how to expand public-private partnerships to expand collaborative cross-cutting research. Federal and non-federal committee representatives and NIH staff developed a survey to address item 1 above and performed a portfolio analysis to address item 2 above. The committee was charged in 2012 with an additional task: to create a comprehensive, population health level strategy for pain prevention, treatment, management, and research. Volunteers from the IPRCC and professional associations established a working group to address the 2012 charge to the committee.
