The Fondazione Paolo Procacci was created to promot and support initiatives of any form that advance the prevention, the early diagnosis, the cure and social services for illness called pain and related symptoms. The Foundation is promoted byinternationally renown and productive scientists and researchers who have been active for years in some of most important scientificsocieties and associations dedicated to pain, including the Italian Association for the Study of Pain AISD, the European Federation of IASP Chapters EFIC, the International Association for the Study of Pain IASP and the World Institute of Pain WIP. The FPP represents a synergy between a rigourous s c i e n t i f i c k n o w l e d g e and the organisational instruments of a foundation. It is the nexus of the professional skills and knowledge that are fundamental to spreading scientific concepts on the study and treatment of pain and to stimulate further research.
Dr. Mario Tiengo, pioneer of pain physiopathology and therapy in Italy, passed away in the Salvatore Maugeri Foundation Clinic in, Pavia, Italy,at the age of 88. Dr. Tiengo earned his degree in medicine and surgery in 1947 at the State University of Milan, Italy. His experimental thesis in neurophysiology was published in 1948. He spent a few years as an Assistant to Prof. Rodolfo Margaria at the Institute of Neurophysiology at the State University of Milan. At that point, he obtained the “specializzazione” (a type of Masters’ degree) and a “libera docenza” (a kind of assistant professorship) in Anesthesia and Intensive Care. In 1954, he founded the Anesthesia and Intensive Care department at the Istituti Clinici “Mangiagalli” hospital in Milan and undertook the role of Chief. In 1960, he received his PhD in Anesthesiology and Intensive Care from the State University of Milan. A great friend of John Bonica, he was inspired by the American model, and in the 1970s, he established the first pain therapy care guidelines at the hospital, for both chronic non-cancer pain and palliative care.
FEPC is a not-for-profit organization focused on the improvement of pain care in the United States through the restoration of ethical, effective practice in the field. Through education of the public, health care professionals, and other stakeholders in pain care, FEPC strives to improve the integrity and quality of the treatment of patients with pain, and to ultimately serve as an example for health care as a whole.
FEPC was developed as a response to the erosion of the professional integrity of the broad field of pain care over the past several decades, which has resulted in the deterioration of the quality of care that patients with pain receive. Once considered a noble “profession”, pain care has become merely a “business”, with this devolution from patient-focus to profit-focus adversely affecting patients suffering from pain. Professionals who treat pain are strongly influenced by third party payers, industry, and other special interest groups that deny a fiduciary obligation to the population that we are entrusted to aid. This influence is a broad one, and is axiomatic in the areas of clinician training and everyday practice.
