|Symptom Science RIG|
NOTE: The former name of this RIG was that of Pain & Symptom Management.
The focus of the Symptom Science RIG is to advance nursing knowledge related to pain and symptom management. The role of nursing science is critical to assist health care providers to better understand, prevent and manage pain and other symptoms experienced by patients. The Symptom ScienceRIG is comprised of nurse researchers from around the Midwest. The RIG is fortunate to have diversity in its membership regarding years of experience studying pain and other symptoms, effectiveness of interventions, and the physiology of these phenomena. Members range from master's students to full professors. Many RIG members have current or prior funding including small and large grants, whereas others have never been funded, but serve as an important resource regarding pain and symptom-related issues.
