About Joanne Schneider, DNP

During my 31 years at the Cleveland Clinic my role has focused on helping individuals with chronic pain, as well as acute chronic pain. I function as an interdisciplinary team member in the Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program, which treats individuals with chronic pain, addiction and psychosocial issues. In the outpatient clinic, I see individuals for initial evaluations, provide medication management and psychotherapy, and follow-up to assess treatment outcomes. I educate nurses, medical students, residents, and fellows on pain management. I am the coordinator of the Center for Neurological Restoration advanced practice clinicians, facilitate various Foundation of Healthcare Communication courses, and lecture at Case Western Reserve University Frances Payton Bolton School of Nursing. In the past I have managed the inpatient acute/chronic pain hospital consult-service. I am a board member for the American Chronic Pain Association.

Joanne is the consummate professional. She has taken care of my chronic pain for over 20 years. She is so skilled, kind, firm and compassionate. She and Dr Tanka recently guided me through one of the most challenging pain issues in the last 29 years. Thank you!
