Active Citizenship Network launched the second edition of the bi- annual research-project at the European level “EU Civic Prize on Chronic Pain - Collection of good practices” with the aim to highlight existing good practices in several European countries in terms of struggle against pain.

In particular, this second edition allows us to expand the “agora” of operators of good practices on pain, encouraging the exchange of experiences among health professionals, healthcare providers, Institutions, civic associations and patient advocacy groups.

Aims of the project

  • Giving continuity to the successful collection of good practices “EU Civic Prize on Chronic Pain - Collection of good practices” - First Edition.
  • Enriching European and national experiences, expertise, data and benchmarking on chronic pain.
  • Fostering the multi-stakeholder platform of operators of good practices on pain, created in the last years of ACN’ projects on chronic pain, at European and national level.
