The delivery of integrated pain management through interdisciplinary teams is recognized as the ideal approach to caring for patients with chronic non-cancer pain (CNCP). Unfortunately the current state of medical education and health care delivery present a number of barriers that must be overcome to make this ideal a reality. This chapter offers an overview of several promising approaches that bring pain management closer to the ideal including interprofessional education, collaborative practice and integrative approaches to chronic pain management. The chapter concludes with a description of Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center (UNMHSC), an innovative model that enables clinicians across the country to implement the reality of integrated, multidisciplinary care in a variety of practice settings.
