Video highlights from Societal Impact of Pain 2013

Pain experts from across the Euro­pean Union met in Brus­sels in May for a meet­ing of the Soci­etal Impact of Pain. The group is a lob­by­ing plat­form which aims to improve pain man­age­ment across the EU. This year’s meet­ing focused on two top­ics: how best to mea­sure the qual­i­ty of pain man­age­ment ser­vices and help­ing peo­ple with chron­ic pain remain in or re-enter the workplace.

This video fea­tures brief inter­views with some of the most influ­en­tial peo­ple at the meet­ing talk­ing about the rea­sons for hold­ing it and their aspi­ra­tions for the future of pain man­ag­ment in the EU.

AS a Long Term Chron­ic Pain Suf­fer­er for over 10 Years look­ing at this Euro idea on Pain..After Lis­ten­ing to the Com­ments on the Film…They These Peo­ple Have NO Idea what they are Talk­ing about..I Seri­ous­ly Doubt if Many of them Have Ever suf­fered Chron­ic Pain in their Lives…They are More con­cerned about tak­ing Pic­tures then Help­ing peo­ple who are in Con­stant Pain…They are ONLY here to try to get peo­ple Back into Work..Our Coali­tion gov­ern­ment are doing a Sim­i­lar pro­gramme Though they do NOT care how much Pain you are in…

I had to give up work because of pain. The expe­ri­ence left me feel­ing worth­less and use­less. 2 years lat­er I man­aged to get back to work two hours a week, even then I strug­gled with my pain. Now, 30 years lat­er, I am glad I took that step. I’m still in pain but I can do more. I work part time in Pain Con­cern’s office and real­ly enjoy hav­ing a role and work col­leagues. My pain is still there but at least I have some­thing else to think about and to fill my day.
