On 29th November 2022, SIP will host a multi-stakeholder virtual event entitled “Pain in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11): a SIP Event”. During this event, speakers and participants will discuss the findings from the SIP Road Map Monitor 2022, which will be launched on the same day.
The Road Map Monitor was also conducted in 2019, but is now repeated to understand how national guidelines, action plans, and the status of policies supporting the updated priorities of SIP, have evolved in the last few years, especially, after the challenging past 2 years with the COVID-19 pandemic.
More details including the agenda will follow soon.
