About Patrick J Tighe

Dr. Tighe serves in the Division of Acute Pain Medicine and provides care in the blockroom, acute pain service, and operating room. Additionally, he is the director of the Perioperative Analytic Group and Co-Director of the Perioperative Cognitive Anesthesia Network (PeCAN).

Dr. Tighe’s research examines how machine and deep learning algorithms, decision and process modeling, and social network analyses can improve processes related to acute postoperative pain, cognition, and perioperative patient safety. His work is currently supported by an R01 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at the National Institutes of Health to examine the temporal dynamics of postoperative pain. Additionally, he is a Co-PI for PRECEDE, examining the role of perioperative factors associated with postoperative cognition. He collaborates with a diverse array of researchers from the Colleges of Medicine, Engineering, Business, Dentistry, and Pharmacy.

Dr. Tighe serves as section co-editor for the Acute and Perioperative Section of the journal Pain Medicine, and is on the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Pain Medicine. He serves on the committee on Electronic and Media Information Technology (EMIT) at the American Society of Anesthesiologists. In addition, Dr. Tighe has worked with the Analgesic, Anesthetic, and Addiction Clinical Trial Translations, Innovations, Opportunities, and Networks (ACTTION) group to develop a new multidimensional taxonomy for acute pain. He recently served as a consultant to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement on behalf of the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation for the IHI “Advancing the Safety of Acute Pain Management” initiative.
