Committee Role

The PainTrain Committee previously co-ordinated the national GABACUTE study. Many of our original members have gone on to CCT. At present a small group of us meet virtually approximately monthly to help coordinate our program of educational activities and hope to launch some exciting new research projects over the next year. We will be launching our search for new committee members at the PainTrain National Research Day in September. If you cannot attend check here afterwards for more information as to how to get involved.
