PAE Survey on Pain & Stigma - open until 1st March 2019
Launched at the end of 2018, the third edition of PAE Surveys on Chronic Pain deals with the different facets of stigma that affect the pain patients – at the healthcare provider, at work, in everyday life and at all social levels.
Besides the harmful effects on the patients themselves, the stigma related to pain manifestations and impact and the invisible nature of the disease constitute a real barrier to a significant and efficient treatment of chronic pain.
Translated in 16 languages, the survey intends to produce patient-related data to illustrate the invisible difficulties that pain patients meet and to raise awareness of the effects the entire society’s attitudes at different levels of interaction generate on pain patients.
PAE’s team and volunteers are continuously working on extending the outreach of this project to increase participation for a better relevance of data. We hereby invite all patient organisations, healthcare professionals and other SIP stakeholders to contribute by sharing the links to the survey with their respective members and contacts concerned with pain.
The Pain and Stigma Survey will be open until the 1st March 2019.
