The center is the first of its kind in Jordan to treat chronic pain using state-of-the-art methods and techniques under the supervision of specialized and qualified cadres, said Dr Abdullah Kharabsheh, a founding member at the center.

He said at the opening ceremony that the professional team provides modern, minimally invasive treatments to solve chronic and acute pain problems that can be debilitating for both patients and families, including cancer pains.

Kharabsheh said that the Middle East Academy of Pain Management aims to improve expertise, communication skills, and interventional pain management skills of doctors who deal with patients with chronic pain, as it offers courses for anesthesiologists, rheumatologists, rehabilitation physicians, musculoskeletal radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, and physicians who have special interest in chronic pain medicine.

He pledged the academy's support to education, clinical treatment, and research of all pain conditions to translate this knowledge into improved pain relief and safe practice worldwide, with the aim of becoming a center of excellence in this field.  

The center and the academy, in cooperation with Jordan Palliative Care and Pain Management Society, have held a series of training workshops in pain management, delivered by a group of Jordanian, European and Asian experts and doctors, which focused on state-of-the-art interventional pain treatment, psychiatry, and physical therapy as well as the preparation of a treatment plan that suits the individual needs of each patient.

In addition to pain relief, the center aims to improve the patient's quality of life and avoid addiction to pain killer drugs.
