The COVID-19 pandemic has had an influence on people with chronic pain just as it has had on everyone in society. We saw this before in the results of the Pain Alliance Europe’s survey which was conducted in early 2020.
Now with this new and in-depth survey, we have looked more deeply into this subject to find out if there are more noteworthy points to consider. In this first, short report, we are only highlighting some of the most standout results.
As we know from past research, the management of chronic pain is based on a bio-psycho-social model. This means that all three elements should be addressed at the same time in order to achieve the best possible care. This survey shows that we are a long way from that. So, there is a lot more work ahead of us.
