Summary The Army Surgeon General LTG Eric B. Schoomaker chartered the Army Pain Management Task Force (TF) in August 2009 to make recommendations for a MEDCOM comprehensive pain management strategy that was holistic, multidisciplinary, and multimodal in its approach, utilizes state of the art/science modalities and technologies, and provides optimal quality of life for Soldiers and other patients with acute and chronic pain. TSG appointed BG Richard Thomas, Assistant Surgeon General for Force Projection, as the TF Chairperson. Task Force membership included a variety of medical specialties and disciplines from the Army, as well as representatives from the Navy, Air Force, TRICARE Management Activity, and Veterans Health Administration (VHA).
