The Societal Impact of Pain hosted a workshop on cancer-related pain at #EFIC2022
On the 27th of April, the Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) hosted a workshop related to its policy recommendations for cancer-related pain at the 2022 European Pain Federation Congress in Dublin, Ireland.
Attendees heard from Uri Hochberg on the EFIC Standards for Cancer-related Pain in Europe, from Jamie Wilkinson who presented SIP’s cancer-related pain policy recommendations and advocacy work, and Deidre Ryan (president of Pain Alliance Europe) who spoke about bridging the gap from patient experience to advocacy for national implementation of cancer pain policies.
Following the workshop, a call to action was made ensure the implementation of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan reflects the EFIC Standards, SIP’s Recommendations, and patient perspectives when being implemented across European Member States. To learn more, please see our cancer pain policy webpage.
