What is the SIP Strategy in 2019?
In 2019 the Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) platform will continue to engage both on European and national level, focusing on the following policy hooks, which are also included in the SIP Thematic Network Joint Statement:
- Pain as a healthcare indicator
- Research on pain
- Pain education on healthcare professionals, patients and society
- Pain as a factor in employment
In 2018 the Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) focused on establishing activities at a national level.
Some countries identified key stakeholders representing the SIP partners who initiated and drove national SIP platforms. Based on a common strategy, the international SIP partners helped them shape up their national compaigns. In 2019, we will continue to support the work of the existing national SIP platforms and to provide guidance how to set up new platforms.
