Article abstract-To assess pain medicine education, surveys were mailed to practicing neurologists (PNs) and residency program directors (PDs).
Thirty percent of PNs felt adequately trained to diagnose and 20% to treat pain disorders.
PNs stated that more pain education is needed for resident training (89%) and for PNs (91%). PDs ranked the importance of a pain subspecialty seventh out of eight subspecialties ; only 29% reported having a neurology pain specialist on the faculty.
These data strongly suggest a need to improve the pain medicine education of neurologists.
