SIP 2016, WG3: Recommendations on 'The relevance of pain in cancer care and rehabilitation'


The European Union plays a complimentary role with national governments in the fight against noncommunicable diseases such as cancer. In 2009, the European Partnership for Action Against Cancer (EPAAC)i was set up as a means to coordinate activities across the EU and to advise member states on good practices. This initiative resulted in the first Joint Action EPAAC (JA EPAAC), which had a broad scope and spanned from health promotion to palliative care.
