Meet the Societal Impact of Pain team!

SIP Europe

As we have noted previously, the Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) has entered a new age, with the management of the project falling to the European Pain Federation EFIC and Pain Alliance Europe. Under this new management, we aim to continue with the hard work done by the SIP partners over the first 10 years, and to find new opportunities to change pain policy for the benefit of patients. One of the principal aims of SIP is to connect all stakeholders involved in pain policy, to create a community, and to share best practices. That being the case, it’s important to know who is behind SIP and who to contact!
