New Publication - EPPOSI CCM White Paper
EPPOSI White Paper on a Chronic Conditions Model - chronic pain included!
The independent, not‐for‐profit, partnership-based and multi‐stakeholder think tank EPPOSI just published a White Paper on “Building a Workable Model for the Holistic Management of Chronic Conditions in Europe”.
While EPPOSI has been endorsing the symposia SIP 2011 and SIP 2012, the SIP-Platform and SIP Endorsing Organisations have supported the development of the White Paper during the past two years, including the demand for the recognition of Chronic Pain“… as an essential part of European and national policy-making on chronic conditions and diseases and as a health state to be treated as a disease in its own right.”
