Experiences from a SIP National Platform in Malta - Poster presentation at SIP 2019

Gertrude Buttigieg, Christine Baluci, Mario Grixti, Christopher Vella – SIP National, Malta

SIP Malta was initiated in 2016 to build a coalition of national SIP allies and to identify the gaps and needs how to improve pain management in Malta. Representatives from Maltese MEPs and MPs, the Ministry of Health, service providers, healthcare professionals, patient and citizens’ organisations agreed to work together to address the common theme of pain.

SIP Malta co-hosted the SIP 2017 Symposium and presented a Maltese consensus paper. This was followed by a research project on the impact of chronic pain in Malta. The results were presented at a conference in 2018, which led to a position paper on chronic pain for further policy work.

The next step is to actively contribute to the various consultation initiatives the Maltese government will be issuing, in preparation for the National Health Strategy 2030.

For further information about the SIP 2019 symposium, please have a look at the Event Programme.
