The INOVPAIN project is structured around 6 complementary Work Packages (WP) conducted in parallel. Emphasis is put on the need of a tight collaboration between clinicians and researchers for a rapid transfer of new fundamental knowledge into clinical practice and personalized healthcare, and to stimulate research from clinical questions.
Care, Evaluation and Database (wp1) aims at developing a comprehensive multidimensional rCP assessment, at selecting the best therapeutic options, and at building a shared database to ollow-up this carefully studied cohort of rCP patients.
Education (wp6) aims at promoting and disseminating the translational approach of INOVPAIN among the students, health professionals, patients, the greater public and policy makers; it therefore benefits directly from the achievements in the WP1 through 5.
These work packages interact together and show how the INOVPAIN project proposes a multidiscplinary, complementary, synergistic and regionally organized network focused on refractory chronic pain management and research.
