German Pain Society - "Action Day Against Pain"

Deutsche Schmerzgesellschaft - "Aktiv gegen den Schmerz"

Deutsche Schmerzgesellschaft - "Aktiv gegen den Schmerz"

17 % of Germans suffer from non-tumor related chronic pain. According to recent estimations, 50% of these patients are receiving inadequate pain treatment. For this reason, the Deutsche Schmerzgesellschaft e.V. is implementing reconsiderations in their “national action plan against pain” concerning politics and science.

On the 5th of June the Deutsche Schmerzgesellschaft will organize a nationwide “Action Day Against Pain”. By organizing this nationwide day, pain as an important subject will be made public even more. Under this year’s motto of “creating awareness”, people who are affected by pain can inform themselves by over 20 clinics that are participating. Through a cost free hotline, patients (and others) are given the opportunity to ask questions to pain specialist from all over Germany.

On 24 April a press conference was held about this subject. Please find here all materials related to this press conference. Please also find here the full announcement.
