There is growing evidence for the application of ultrasonography, radiofrequency ablation and neuromodulation in chronic pain management for both diagnostic and treatment applications. Techniques such as epigenetics and the use of risk stratification tools will enable personalised medicine.

What impact for those living with brain, mind and pain disorders?
A breakfast meeting of the MEP Interes Group on Brain, Mind and Pain will take place on March 17th between 8:00 and 9:30 at the European Parliament with co-host the EPP Group in the European Parliament. Important for this meeting is the European Commission’s communication on “Enabling the digital transformation of health and care in the Digital Single Market; empowering citizens and building a healthier society”, as well as the Parliament’s motion for a resolution on the same topic that was published in December 2019.
Therefore, this meeting would like to explore how the organisations can best optimise these frameworks and arising policy actions to improve the quality of life of those living with neurological disorders and chronic pain conditions, as well as empowering and involving patients more meaningfully in their own healthcare. The draft agenda is attached.

Is brain health a global priority?
In the Political Declaration on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), which arose from the United Nations (UN) High-Level Meeting on NCDs in 2018, all Governments recognized that ‘mental disorders and other mental health conditions, as well as neurological disorders, contribute to the global burden of NCDs. It resulted in adding mental and neurological health as the ‘5th NCD’, complementing global efforts to combat cancer, CVD, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases. This has been reinforced in the recent 2019 UN Declaration on the Universal Health Coverage, where ‘mental disorders and other mental health conditions as well as neurological disorders’ have been identified as an ‘essential component of UHC’. Additionally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) is also now building a new Brain Health team to operate from its headquarters in Geneva. The question now is how can we ensure this progress can be translated into policy action at EU and member state level? 
How do we make brain health an EU priority?
It is clear that we can no longer afford to soft-pedal the agenda of brain health, which has been largely neglected in the Union’s efforts in addressing NCDs. We need to follow the data and work together towards effective and implementable solutions. We will discuss these issues at the event, with key actors engaged in health promotion and disease prevention at the global and EU level. This will include representatives from WHO, EU Member States, NCD global and European advocacy groups, patient organizations, clinicians and more, along with Members of the European Parliament and European Commission. It will allow for an expert-led, action orientated discussion aimed at identifying challenges and opportunities laying ahead of EU in the years to come.
Should you be available and interested in attending, please fill in the registration form before Friday, January 31st. You can access the form at this link: https://bit.ly/2uHEKbj. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to advocacy@efna.net
