American Pain Society

The American Pain Society (APS) had its beginnings on March 6, 1977 at a now historic meeting in Chicago of the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on the Formation of a National Pain Organization. Important events preparing the way for the Chicago meeting were significant increases in public awareness of pain management and research; the need for a national organization of pain professionals; the existence of two regional pain societies, the Eastern and Western USA Chapters of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP); and the growth of the IASP.

It was realized that the new IASP in its early years would have to rely heavily on financial and membership support from the US Consequently, there was some urgency for the creation of a US national pain organization to work with and become an integral part of the IASP, as well as represent the interests of the various local and/or regional pain groups within the US Preliminary discussions between representatives of the eastern and western chapter leaders resulted in the decision to hold a joint face-to-face conference. Drs. John J. Bonica and B. Berthold Wolff were asked to invite interested pain professionals from across the US, covering a wide disciplinary range, to the Chicago meeting.
