Active Citizenship Network is glad to launch the third edition of its bi- annual 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.
This third edition allows us to continuing expanding 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.
Exceptionally, for this edition, the Prize recognizes also outstanding initiatives that have been put in place, modified, or updated to face and mitigate the COVID – 19 pandemic consequences on chronic pain patients’ life.
Aims of the project
- Giving continuity to the previous successful collections of good practices: “European Civic Prize on Chronic Pain - Collecting Good Practices" First Edition and Second 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.
THE APPLICATION PERIOD IS CLOSED!!!
The award is open to any healthcare stakeholder: patients’ associations, health professionals, private and public hospitals, universities, etc., also from extra UE countries.
