Upcoming Event

The future of BRAIN, MIND and PAIN advocacy

NOVEMBER 10TH, 2020
10.00 – 13.00hrs, VIRTUAL EVENT

In recent months, the MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain has been reviewing and updating its policy direction – in view of current EU priorities and a public health field shaped increasingly by the impact Covid-19.

Following a landscape analysis and patient insight survey, the group has updated its plans and created a Roadmap for Action 2021/2022 which will be launched during its latest virtual event on November 10th between 10.00 and 13.00hrs CET.

So join us then, when we will have short opening and closing plenary sessions – featuring representatives from the World Health Organisation, the European Parliament and Commission, upcoming EU presidencies and many more…

Here we will learn how we can ensure alignment with, and leverage, the public health priorities for those affected by neurological and chronic pain conditions.

And you can also join the more interactive, multi-stakeholder discussions via our series of three parallel breakout sessions. These will explore the core themes of the Interest Group:

  • STIGMA: Getting those affected by BMP disorders re-integrated in society and back to work post-pandemic
  • ACCESS: Building forward better – creating more resilient health systems post-pandemic to ensure equitable and timely access to treatment, services and supports
  • PATIENT EMPOWERMENT: Ensuring the digital transformation of healthcare in the EU promotes patient empowerment for increased involvement and engagement

This is your opportunity to learn more about our new direction and to have your say in validating our Roadmap to Action!

RESOURCES:

The drafts above will be finalised after the meeting based on the feedback received and will be published on the homepage in December.
