The Oxford Pain Internet Site

This site is for anyone with a professional or personal interest in pain and analgesia. It is firmly based in the principles of evidence-based medicine and has pulled together systematic reviews with pain as an outcome. The site is free because the BUPA Foundation and Merck Sharp and Dohme provided funds to create it. Pfizer UK sponsored maintenance of the site in 2002, but there is no current sponsorship.This section is derived from the Pharmacy subsite sponsored by Janssen-Cilag.

For a November 2005 note on the inpatient clinical service click here.
