American Society of Pain Educators

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit professional organization dedicated solely to training healthcare professionals to become Credentialed Pain Educators (CPEs) who are specialized resources for pain management in their clinical settings. As the only agency for training pain educators, the ASPE teaches healthcare professionals to educate their peers and patients, together with families and caregivers, on ways to relieve pain by the safest means possible.

The ASPE is the fastest growing pain organization in the US today. As the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations requires pain management education in all of its accredited institutions, the ASPE goal is to eventually have a CPE in every JCAHO-accredited facility.
