Society Information

European Pain Federation EFIC

The European Pain Federation was founded in 1993 and meanwhile represents 35 national pain societies in Europe that have been chartered by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP®).

In general the European Pain Federation is organised to promote multidisciplinary research, education and management of pain. The specific aim is to create a forum for European collaboration on pain issues and to encourage communication at a European level between the federation's member societies and also with other bodies interested and involved in the fields of pain research and pain therapy, such as European, regional or national societies or federations of medical specialities (anaesthesiology, neurology, headache, palliative care, etc), institutions of the European Community, European and national educators, legislators and health care providers.

The affairs of the European Pain Federation are conducted by its Council, which consists of the President or the councillor of each member pain society and 5 elected officers who form the Executive Board of the Federation. The Council meets at least once a year, while the Executive Board manages affairs between Council meetings. The European Pain Federation is being established as a charitable foundation in Belgium.
