SIP National, Spain
On the eve of the SIP Symposium 2019, the Spanish SIP Platform’s Steering Committee met to prepare for the upcoming SIP Spain 2020 meeting. The meeting was led by the Spanish Pain Society (SED), Pain Alliance Europe (PAE), Spanish Society of Quality of Care (SECA),with the collaboration of the Spanish Hospital Management Society (SEDISA).
During the meeting, the outcomes and key learnings of SIP Spain’s meeting in 2018 were highlighted. Based on these, a proposed overview of the key topics for the planned SIP Spain 2020 meeting was put forward. The proposed three topics for discussion are:
- Institutional setting: Discussions will focus on why the development of pain plans are useful and with which focus, as well as sharing experiences and key learnings.
- Tools for patient and physician education: Discussion will focus on the key topics areas which should be included in educational programs as well as when and by whom. The role of patient associations and institutional patient schools will also be raised.
- Measurement of pain: Discussions will focus on what is currently being measured versus what should be measured as well as assessing the impact of functionality on the outcomes (e.g. QoL, influencing productivity of active workers, etc.) and the key learnings and experiences.
