"Societal disease" pain - deficient care in Germany
In November 2015 the German Pain League (Deutschen Schmerzliga e.V. (DSL)), the German Society of Pain Medicine (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Schmerzmedizin DGS) and the Professional Association of Physicians and Psychological Psychotherapists in Pain and Palliative Care in Germany (und Palliativmedizin in Deutschland e.V. (BVSD)) invited to the National Care Forum Pain, where pain physicians, members of the German Parliament, representatives of insurance companies, associations of statutory health insurance physicians and patients discussed concepts for an improved pain care in Germany.
The unanimous consent among the participants: Current pain care is deficient.
