My Pain Feels Like Campaign
Let's Make A Change
A targeted campaign on pain awareness has been developed recently by Grunenthal, in collaboration with Montescano Pain School. Pain Alliance Europe is an official supporter of this project and encourages its members to make use of its tools in order to develop national campaigns: the pain simulator box, the questionnaire, the results of it, the patients stories and others.
The campaign aims to raise awareness for the burden of localized neuropathic pain patients, to support patients in their need for information about their unbearable pain, to improve the communication between patients and physicians and to improve the misdiagnosis and trial and error treatment approach.
You can find more information about this on the campaign’s official website page (available in FR, IT, EN, ES and soon in DE):
About the questionnaire
On the campaign website you will find a questionnaire entitled “my pain questionnaire” which encourages the patients to use their own words for describing their pain, in order to increase the health professionals’ understanding of the associated words related to localised neuropathic pain. It also inquires about how the pain affects the life of the patient and invites to highlight the areas of the body where pain is mostly felt.
