SIP Thematic Network Framing Document v2

Vittoria Carraro – European Pain Federation EFIC, Belgium

This draft paper presents the common position of stakeholders from the health, social, and employment sectors in Europe on the issue of the status of pain in the European Union. It presents existing policies that are and can be relevant to pain and lays them out into four categories: health indicators, research, employment, and education.

Further, this paper highlights where there are gaps in relation to addressing pain and offers recommendations to action to policy makers and all other stakeholders to address these identified challenges. Our goal is to achieve improved care and pain management across the EU to reduce the societal impact of the disease, which touches upon all aspects of life.

The Framing Document and the associated Call to Action were developed by the Societal Impact of Pain (SIP), in partnership with stakeholders and members of the EU Health Policy Platform. The document have been discussed in the first Webinar on June 25th from 11.30 - 12.30. The revised Version of the Framing Document is attached.
