New campaign "Allianz Chronischer Schmerz Österreich"
Sign the signature campaign to support the Alliance's concerns
In austria an estimated 1.5 to 1.7 million people are dealing with chronic pain. The road to diagnoses is long and often not really effective, the therapy is cost-intensive and insufficient. EURAG Austria, the non-profit representative of the quality of life of older people in 33 stages, took the founding of Pain Alliance Europe (PAE), a European-wide organisation, as an example for the launch of the "Allianz Chronischer Schmerz Österreich" ("Alliance Chronic Pain Austria"). Meanwhile 34 self-help groups joined this initiative.
The alliance started a signature campaign on their new website, with the motto: "Together we are strong", everyone who signs this campaign (also possible per "click" on the website) shows that they support the concerns of the alliance:
- Recognize chronic pain als a disease on its own.
- Ensure a rapid diagnosis and effective treatment.
- Improve communicatoin between patients and doctors.
- Strengthen personal responsibility and competence of the patients.
