DOLORES price donation to motivate others
For the first time a patient organisation - the Alliance Chronic Pain - has organized an award, which has been officially handed over under the umbrella of the Main Association of Austrian Social Security Institutions (Hauptverband der Österreichischen Sozialversicherungsträger) in Vienna / Austria on 23 September 2015. The awards were given to teams of physicians, therapists and professionals in the health care system, who cooperate on voluntary basis to achieve an optimal pain care for patients respecting the performance catalogue of statutory health insurances.
Many projects and initiatives were conducted in Austria by patient organisations, HCP-organisations and governmental institutions.
