In Slovenia, representatives from scientific and patient organisations, representatives from the National Council, PAE, Grünenthal, and EFIC came together in October 2019 to establish SIP SLO. The event was designed as conference with the aim to raise awareness on societal impact of pain in Slovenia, establish SIP SLO, produce a position paper, and to design an
action plan for next two years.
The Plan would focus on:
- improvement of pain education at professional, patients, political and public level in 2020,
- pain as an indicator (acquiring additional data, implementation of ICD-11, establish national chronic pain policy) and
- actions focused on reintegration of pain patients into to the workforce, in 2021.
