25/06/2019: Chronic Pain Policy Coalition 2019 Pain Platform

The CPPC is hosting a patient centric Pain Platform meeting exploring the burden of chronic pain in England, and how we can improve policy in this area.

The meeting will be held on the 25th June 2019 at the House of Lords. The event will be opened by The Rt Hon. the Lord Luce and hosted by the Chronic Pain Policy Coalition (CPPC) in collaboration with its partners the British Pain Society (BPS) and the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM). Speakers on the day include Dr Paul Cameron, National Chronic Pain Coordinator, Scottish Government, and Sue Brown, CEO of the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA).

The discussion on the day will focus on the impact of chronic pain on individuals and society, and actionable policy solutions that will seek to improve the lives of those with chronic pain. We will hear from a range of speakers from across the pain landscape, as well as from attendees, about their priorities and ideas. We aim to stimulate a call to action for policy makers to engage with chronic pain policy and to facilitate the implementation of possible solutions.
