SIP Portugal pre-launch meeting
On 16 September, the members of SIP Portugal met to talk about the activities carried out over the past year and prepare for the official launch of SIP Portugal which will take place on 18 October.
The theme of the event will be "Investigate, Evaluate, Educate, Act".
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”.
