Irish Pain Society (IPS)
The Irish Pain Society believes that every individual suffering from a chronic pain condition has the right to access appropriate information for the better understanding of his/her condition. It believes all patients should have access to the highest possible standard of care, from appropriately trained clinicians, in facilities adequately equipped to meet their needs. The society endeavours to promote public awareness of persistent pain as a chronic illness, which seriously impacts quality of life for patients and their families. The society believes that greater recognition and understanding is required at government level so that greater resources are made available to meet the needs of patients suffering from this condition.
