Do you have an example of best practice to share that could inspire our work in the fields of neurology or chronic pain? If so, we would like to hear from you and offer you a possible opportunity to present your work at our annual conference to a panel of high-level policymakers!
In advance of the upcoming annual conference of the MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain – we have opened a call for best practices. (Detailed of that event will be available shortly. The event will take place Friday, November 19th from 10.00 – 13.00hrs CET)
Based on the priority topics identified in our working session back in June, we’d like to gather ideas in the following areas:
- ERADICATING STIGMA, ISOLATION AND DISCRIMINATION
Focus on: Raising public awareness of the needs of those living with neurological disorders and/or chronic pain conditions at all ages
- ENSURING EQUITABLE ACCESS TO TREATMENT, SERVICES AND SUPPORT
Focus on: Improving education and information on neurological and/or chronic pain conditions, and their management
- PROMOTING PATIENT EMPOWERMENT FOR INCREASED INVOLVEMENT AND ENGAGEMENT
Focus on: Empowering women living with neurological disorders and/or chronic pain conditions to engage more effectively in shared decision-making
If you have run a project, initiative or other activity linked to the topics above, we’d be eager to give you a platform to promote and disseminate your work at this high-level conference.
The deadline for applying has been extended to Wednesday, October 13th – after which a selection panel will assess the submissions based on a set of pre-defined criteria. If your project is selected you will be asked to prepare a five minute presentation (pre-recorded) and invited to participate in a panel during the live event in November.
Detailed information – such as the submission guidelines and selection criteria, as well as the link to the entry form – can be found at:
Please do consider getting involved so we can profile as many neurology best practices as possible during the event, and use our policy platform to showcase you and your work!
