SIP 2012: Active and healthy Ageing
Healthy ageing in relation to chronic pain in the European Union.
This systematic review looks at evidence found in the existing literature and evaluates the interrelation of ageing, quality of
life and chronic pain in Europe. It will also elaborate whether prevention and treatment of chronic pain may have a significant
effect on increasing the healthy lifespan by two years, as intended by the Active and Health Ageing Partnership project.
