The Chronic Pain Initiative goes statewide next week. Stay tuned for the official statewide launch of the Chronic Pain Initiative (CPI) next Wednesday.

Each CCNC network has a CPI coordinator who will work with primary care physicians, emergency department staff and specialists treating patients with pain issues. More details are available on the CCNC web site.
