First interactive webinar of the 2018 Thematic Network on SIP
SIP Thematic Network
The Thematic Network on SIP held its first webinar dedicated to discuss the "Challenges and opportunities to address the Societal Impact of Pain in the EU" on 25 June 2018.
Following the introduction by Ingrid Keller from DG SANTE, European Commission, the European Pain Federation (EFIC) and Pain Alliance Europe (PAE) representatives presented the SIP platform and developments within Thematic Network activities. EFIC and PAE presented the draft Framing paper that serves as a more detailed background document of the Joint Statement. The presentations were followed by an interactive Q&A session to identify other relevant data and initiatives related to the topics of the SIP Thematic Network. In the meantime the Framing Paper has been updated accordingly and can be downloaded here.
Participants agreed on the next steps in the finalisation of the Framing paper and the Joint Statement. The focus will be on the inclusion of the valuable comments and contributions of the endorsers between now and September when there will be a second webinar on September 20th. SIP will intensively be working on developing the two outcome documents as inclusively as possible – encouraging potential further endorsers to join this process. The final version of these documents will be presented at the EU Health Policy Platform annual meeting in November 2018.
