SIP France was established to improve pain care policies by gathering a broad coalition of multi-disciplinary organizations. SIP France developed a pain position paper (White Book), endorsed by medical societies, patient associations and healthcare professional organisations involved in pain care. Eighteen representatives from medical societies (pain, rehabilitation, geriatrics, emergency, anesthesiology, rheumatology), patient organisations (pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatology), and healthcare professional organizations (general practitioners and pharmacist) came together in May 2018 to provide concrete measures to improve pain care pathway by focusing on five priority areas: integration, prevention, participation, protection, and

Aimed at raising awareness of pain and the need for it to be a health priority, SIP distributed its position paper at a national event and also organised regional roundtables in the AURA region and Lyon to involve local physicians, patients, and politicians, and share local positive experiences on pain patient care pathway improvements.
