Assessing Knowledge and Awareness of TMR/RPNI in Physicians and Amputees
Information is disseminated much more rapidly with the advent of facilitated interprofessional communication, internet resources and support groups. However, universal understanding should not be assumed. The level of knowledge of TMR/RPNI among physicians and patients should be characterized. Furthermore, the best way to provide continuous education to both physicians and patients on the rapidly evolving field of peripheral nerve intervention for chronic pain should be identified. The goal of this survey is to better characterize awareness of pain management physicians/surgeons, and identify targets for increasing knowledge/interdisciplinary care.
