The MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain states that it is "awaiting with interest the recommendations arising from the SIP working group on ‘Pain, rehabilitation and reintegration of workers in the workforce’. This topic is reflected in the Interest Group’s upcoming Written Declaration on Access to Employment, which will be launched in the autumn. Following the launch, a meeting on this topic will also be held in the Parliament. So there will be opportunity to further the outcomes of SIP in an EU policy-setting."
