Case History of Success
IMPACT proactive: a project launched by PLS Educational four months after the approval of the Legge 38/2010 (a national law that regulates access for citizens to palliative care and pain therapy) to bring together Institutions, Scientific Societies, Associations and Foundations and to create a network that promotes information and up-to-date training to all professionals involved in pain management. This thanks to a high-level Scientific Committee chaired by Gianfranco Gensini and composed by the leading experts in the field.
IMPACT proactive promotes activities, projects and communication strategies: an activity that is carried out through the annual organization of a workshop with national and international guests, to take stock of the situation in the fight against pain and to face during each edition all the different issues related to palliative care and pain therapy.
But not only that: thanks to the two websites www.impactproactive.it (aimed to a scientific audience) and www.impactdolore.it (addressed to a wider public) and to a daily presence on social networks, IMPACT proactive has created a channel to inform and interact both with the citizen/patient and with scientific and institutional partners.
In February 2015 IMPACT proactive launched together with Fondazione ANT Italia Onlus and Federconsumatori the project Vademecum sul dolore (“Handbook on pain”), a booklet aimed at informing citizens, distributed in more than 1,200 strategic points located throughout the Italian territory: it’s the first major national campaign to inform and raise the awareness of citizens on the subject of pain.
