DOLORES prize donation by Austrian Pain Alliance
Austria is happy to host this year´s 9th Congress of the European Pain Federation (EFIC) in Vienna. This event presides a month of pain-reporting in the local media - in a country which boosts a well-developed healthcare system of but is sadly lacking in caring for patients with chronic pain.
For this reason the Austrian Pain Alliance (www.schmerz-allianz.at) decided to donate a prize to those teams of physicians, therapists and other healthcare professionals who make the best of the existing system by working together for the sake of the patient.
The most replicable 3 interdisciplinary and multimodal initiatives will be awarded the DOLORES prize which also includes cheques for Euro 3.000, 2.000 and 1.000. In a special Press conference on September 23, 2015 the winning teams will be honoured in the presence of the media with the aim of spreading the news and inducing others to follow their example.
