Pain as a Health Quality Indicator is one of the key priorities of the SIP Joint Statement from 2018 and is going to be implemented at a national level in the Netherlands.
Thanks to SIP Netherlands (PA!N), the Dutch authorities just recently adapted the chronic pain care standard.
The Chronic Pain Care Standard aims to contribute to:
- equal cooperation between patients and healthcare professionals;
- timely recognition of patients with chronic pain;
- optimal organization and implementation of, prevention of, and care for, chronic pain.
With this collaboration, PA!N made a major step to improve pain treatment for patients at a national level.
