CHANGE PAIN® Advisory Boards
The initiative involves renowned international pain experts with a high reputation from across Europe and the United States. They provide guidance on how to improve the management of pain. Their individual expertise covers both, acute and chronic pain and also the perspective of different stakeholders – from the view of healthcare professionals including nursing as well as the patient.
The Advisory Board consists of two different chapters, one focusing on chronic pain and the other on acute post-operative pain with an overlapping membership.
The Advisory Boards meet regularly to discuss relevant topics on how to improve today's practice in managing pain more efficiently. Services and tools to support healthcare professionals and patients are developed in close cooperation with the CHANGE PAIN Advisory Board and numerous publications reflecting their insights and recommendations can be downloaded.
The commitments are:
Generate insights confirming patients' needs
Communicate findings in scientific publications
Improve knowledge on pain physiology and treatment among healthcare professionals
