Taking action against pain

We are dedicated to creating a better future for our patients, so getting involved with diverse initiatives that support this goal is vital.


CHANGE PAIN® aims to understand the needs of pain patients and develops solutions to improve the management of pain. Since the initiative was launched in twelve European countries in 2009, CHANGE PAIN® already has a history of success in chronic pain management. Many tools have been developed to make physicians’ daily practice easier and more than 65,000 healthcare professionals have been involved in CHANGE PAIN® educational activities, either completing web-based learning modules or attending workshops across Europe.

“My pain feels like”

We believe that it is important that patients can express and describe their symptoms in detail to support early diagnosis and effective treatment. This key insight has inspired us to develop the “My pain feels like…” initiative which is focused on enabling communication between patients and physicians.

Societal Impact of Pain (SIP)

Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) is an international platform created in 2009 as a joint initiative of the European Pain Federation (EFIC) and Grünenthal. It aims to raise awareness of the impact that pain has on our societies, as well as our health and economic systems. It does this by facilitating the exchange of information and best-practice sharing across all European Union member states, and by developing and fostering Europe-wide policy strategies and activities for improved pain care. The scientific framework of the SIP platform is under the responsibility of EFIC. Cooperation partners for SIP include the Pain Alliance Europe and the Active Citizenship Network.
