Pain News - Austrian Round Table

Management of chronic pain patients in Austria Schmerz Nachrichten (Pain News) Round Table

Pain is probably the most widely spread reason why patients consult a physician. Stakeholder, invited by Schmerznachrichten, discussed the status of care of the about 1,5 million Austrian pain patients and how it could be improved.

Participants of the Round Table discussion were Dr. Wolfgang Jaksch, current President of the ÖSG (Austrian Pain Society), Dr. Johannes Steinhart (Vice President of the Austrian Medical Association), Mag. Martin Schaffenrath (Vice Chairman of Association Board in the Federation of Austrian Social Insurances); Dr. Eva Mückstein (Representative of the National Council, Die Grünen), Eva-Marla Kernstock (BIQG, GÖG).
