The charity members of Pain Alliance Europe (PAE) are inviting people with chronic pain or their carers to fill in this short survey on the cause of their pain and its severity – and the various places where they have received or are receiving their treatment. PAE will then create a report comparing the pain patients’ experiences in different countries that can help make politicians and policy makers be more aware of the important issue of chronic pain.
The new survey has been made available in 18 languages and will be online until mid-April. This is a Europe-wide survey, with just 25 tick-box questions. The survey is expected to receive thousands of replies and will be comparing speed of diagnosis and treatment across countries. The results will be presented at a conference in Malta in June.
