Pain Alliance Europe (PAE) Survey

Posted in General by IPS.

Pain Alliance Europe (PAE), the pan-European patients’ organization representing patients with pain-related conditions, has launched an European-wide survey on health issues related to chronic pain, available in several languages.  PAE are one of our key partners at European level, and have member organizations in most European countries.

An introduction to this survey and a link to the list of languages can be found on https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PAE-English

The outcome of the survey will be analyzed and the results will be used to raise more awareness among politicians and policy makers.
