The Finnish Pain Association
In 2017, the Finnish Pain Association will celebrate its 25th year with the theme “Kipu liikuttaa (Pain moves us)”. Various local events around Finland as well as a photography and a writing competition are being organized based on this theme. This celebration will culminate at the Gala Event on October 19th.
The celebration year coincides with the Finnish municipal elections which offer a chance to highlight our objectives. Health, social services and regional government reforms transform our field but the actual changes remain to be seen as the proposed legislation is at the moment waiting for comments from interested groups. The Finnish Pain Association will also give its comments with the help of feedback from our members.
