Upcoming Event

Turning principles into action: best practice in reducing health inequalities

10.00 – 13.00hrs, VIRTUAL EVENT

The annual conference of the MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain will explore best practices in reducing health inequalities for those living with neurological disorders and chronic pain conditions.

High level stakeholders will discuss how we can advance meaningful policies and interventions to address the drivers of this health inequity, before we take a practical look at examples of best practice that can be scaled up and applied to these disease areas.

As always, we will be focusing on our three priority thematic areas: stigma, access and patient empowerment, but with a more targeted focus on different population groups prone to experiencing healthcare inequities – such as the elderly, and women.

Come along to learn more and have your say on how the Interest Group can tackle these challenges in 2022 and beyond!
