National Program for Pain Management

The National Program for Pain Management emerged from the need to define new objectives and new operational strategies, as a follow-up to the NPFAP and using the experience gained so far. Hence, in order to obtain epidemiologic knowledge on pain and its distribution in the Portuguese population, to reinforce the organizational capacity of health care service providers, and to improve best practice models regarding pain management, this new National Program for Pain Management should be developed through the implementation, at national, regional, and local levels, of new strategies for intervention, professional development, and data collection and analysis.

Short Info

In June 2018 a group of multi-disciplinary healthcare professionals and a group of patient representatives met to identify relevant topics for SIP and launched the national SIP platform in Portugal. Both groups are now working together on their common priorities “Pain and Work” and “Awareness on Pain”.
