According to the University of Florida’s College of Medicine website, PAMI is an eLearning and patient safety educational project dedicated to the advancement of pain recognition and treatment. The purpose of PAMI is to address acute and chronic pain in patients of all ages and backgrounds, and finds effective ways to improve patient safety while reducing risk. To fully understand how PAMI works, it is vital first to understand what pain is, how we experience it, and how it affects us. Pain is an alarm. The brain perceives damage or the threat of damage to the body, which tells you to act. Pain is multidimensional, affecting people physically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually. Pain can be misleading. Your body could still send pain signals to your brain, even after an injury has healed.
