PAMI offers free access to nonpharmacologic pain management resources, tools

The current opioid crisis has brought renewed interest in nonpharmacologic pain management. Nonpharmacologic techniques (alone or as adjuncts) may decrease use and/or dose of opioids, procedure times, length of stay and adverse events. The Pain Assessment and Management Initiative (PAMI) website offers several free access nonpharmacologic resources and tools for children and adults, including a Distraction Toolkit and materials from a recent pilot course:
  • Stepwise Approach to Pain Management
  • Behavioral Responses to Pain by Developmental Stage
  • Conversation and Therapeutic Language
  • Psychological & Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions
  • Distraction Techniques and Apps for Guided Imagery, Music, Games and More!
  • Physical (sensory) Interventions such as Comfort Positioning or Hot/Cold Treatments
  • Distraction Toolkit Development and Components
  • Case Scenarios and Videos
Materials are adaptable to your ED, EMS agency or hospital. To learn more or download the toolkit, click here.

We have a limited supply of assembled toolboxes with select distraction tools. If you would like to request a toolbox, please email
