Galician Society of Pain and Palliative Care


Galician Pain Society is a professional society, multidisciplinary and non-profit organization that focuses on pain management and palliative care. It is composed of health professionals with different specialties and backgrounds, especially physicians, but also psychologist and graduates in nursing (210 members).

Its objectives are:

  1. promote scientific research about mechanisms and treatment of pain,
  2. raise public awareness on this problem,
  3. encourage the continuous improvement in assessment and therapy of patients suffering pain.

The society is willing to endorse the “Societal Impact of Pain” since it is a very relevant initiative and very good opportunity for key stakeholders to exchange their best practices in pain, and create consensus for future collaborations on improving pain care.
