CHANGE PAIN® Physician Survey Results – daily practice in severe chronic pain management


The aim of the CHANGE PAIN physician survey was to ascertain how physicians perceive chronic non-cancer pain, and their opinion to its treatment. The survey was started at the 2009 EFIC conference in Lisbon, and has since been implemented at several (inter-) national conferences and online.

The results show that there are huge differences in daily practice of severe chronic pain management, e.g. HCPs rate the severity of pain very differently on a numerical rating scale. This survey was carried out in several European countries.
