MOOC "Acting against chronic pain"

Chronic pain

Pain, and especially chronic pain, is a health problem that affects the quality of life of anyone who suffers it. More than 7 million adults in Spain (17% of the population) suffer from chronic pain.  It is the primary cause of sick leave in Spain and has a sever effect on health, regardless of the age, sex and family environment of the patient.
