Raising awareness for chronic pain on national level
Following the official launch of the "Societal Impact of Pain - A Road Map for Action" on European level in the European Parliament on 4 May 2011, it is SIP's mission to raise awareness of the relevance of the impact that pain has on our societies, health and economic systems and to exchange information and share best-practices across all member states of the European Union.

Report on Chronic Non-Malignant Pain in Europe
"Epidemiology of chronic non-malignant pain in Europe"

Where there was an absence of data on chronic non-cancer pain, studies were used that may have included participants with chronic cancer-related pain.
