IV Simposio Internacional sobre Impacto del Dolor en la Sociedad (SIP)
Background SIP Platform
The European, multi?stakeholder platform Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) was created in 2010 as a joint initiative of the European Federation of IASP® Chapters (EFIC®) and the pharmaceutical company Grünenthal GmbH. The aims are to? raise awareness of the relevance of the impact that pain has on our societies, health and economic systems:
As multi?stakeholder platform SIP provides opportunities for discussion for health care professionals, painadvocacy groups, politicians, insurances, representatives of health authorities, regulators and budget holders.
The scientific framework of the SIP platform thereby is under the responsibility of EFIC®. Grünenthal is responsible for funding and non? financial support (e.g. logistical support).
