European Public Health Association (EUPHA) will host its 16th World Congress on public Health 2020 between October 12th and 17th 2020 in Rome, Italy. EUPHA is an umbrella organisation for public health associations and institutes in Europe with more than 80 members from 47 countries.
The Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) has submitted an abstract for this conference with the title "Societal Impact of Pain thematic network – from European recommendations to national implementations" to be presented in the category "Policy". SIP has received the fantastic news that the abstract has been selected for an oral presentation at the conference.
Background of this presentation is that SIP has been selected in 2018 as a Thematic Network as part of the EU Health Policy Platform and produced a Joint Statement that focuses on four key areas: (1) Indicators, (2) Research, (3) Education, and (4) Employment. The Joint Statement has been used as a basis for projects and initiatives at national level, aligned with the four key priorities.
Results (effects/changes)
Until now, nine SIP national platforms have been established in Belgium, Finland, France, Ireland, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain under the guidance of the European SIP platform. Each platform has identified one or more key areas of the Joint Statement to take concrete actions for implementation. For example, SIP Belgium released a national SIP Joint Statement with the goal to improve the (re)integration of pain patients in the workforce and society.
Lessons
The selection of SIP as a Thematic Network on the EU Health Policy Platform provided opportunities to identify the key areas for impactful pain policy work and led to concrete actions for implementation on national level.
