IASP - 2020 Global Year for the Prevention of Pain
International Association for the Study of Pain - IASP
This year is the IASP "2020 Global Year for Prevention of Pain", where the theme focuses on disseminating pain prevention strategies to researchers, clinicians, and patients.
SIP has contributed in the last 10 years to the prevention of pain by:
- raising awareness of the relevance of the impact that pain has on our societies, health and economic systems
- exchanging information and sharing best-practices across all member states of the European Union
- developing and fostering European-wide policy strategies & activities for an improved pain care in Europe (Pain Policy).
The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) with the collaboration of the European Pain Federation EFIC® provides briefing packs and factsheets on the designated theme, so that a general message can be unified globally and across Europe.
