The Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) Platform is delighted to announce the launch of the translations of ‘The Burden of Pain: A Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) Book of Evidence’.
The “Book of Evidence” was developed for individuals without a scientific background, and it aims to provide insights into the nature of pain, explain the various definitions used (e.g. acute pain, neuropathic pain, nociceptive pain, etc,.), and highlight the extent of the impact of pain on individuals and societies. Further, the ‘Book of Evidence’ includes testimonies from people with lived experiences of pain.
In particular, the Recommendations highlighted at the end of the document are a call to action for EU and national policymakers, in order to adequately address the impact of pain on individuals and societies.
