Epidemiology of chronic non-malignant pain in Spain
In May 2010, the report "Epidemiology of chronic non-malignant pain in Spain" was written by Karla Soares Weiser, Ivan Sola, Ed Aromataris, Jesús Tornero, Concepción Pérez, César Margarit and Jos Kleijnen. Chronic pain is a widespread problem. However, the information about this problem is scarce. This report therefore aims to provide epidemiological data about chronic pain in Spain. The report itself and a slide show on the report can be found below.
SIP Spain was successfully launched on June 26th 2018 in Spain after several patient organisations and clinical experts came together with representatives from the Ministry of Health and three other regional communities.
