Pain Euro-Mediterranean Coalition (PEMeC) Aliança Euro-Mediterrânica da Dor

A primeira incubadora cívica de melhores práticas contra a dor em toda a Europa

Enquadramento: O que é a Dor Crónica e as suas implicações
A dor crónica é uma condição grave de saúde que afeta negativamente a qualidade de vida dos doentes, tanto a nível físico como a nível psicológico. Geralmente, a dor começa como um sintoma ou como um efeito colateral de outros problemas de saúde, mas após um determinado período de tempo, ela torna-se uma doença crónica por si só. No entanto, ainda é grande a luta para que a dor crónica seja reconhecida e tratada como uma doença e não como um sintoma porque não pode ser facilmente medida ou diagnosticada.
