Position paper on the treatment of CRPS in Europe/Standards

A position paper on the treatment of CRPS in Europe was published in the European Journal of Pain in January. Well-known medical practitioners from Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Denmark and Poland as well as from Irsael and Australia have together put together the current methods and best practices to raise standards for treatment Set. So far, there are different good and bad treatment routes in each country and the secured diagnosis "CRPS" is either not made or not made in time.

So far, we have only been present in English for the position paper, but we are working on a translation that we will publish here.

The CRPS network has translated the position paper into German for a better understanding. The translation can be downloaded here.

CRPS Diagnostic Times survey by CRPS Network Australia

Dear people, Dear relatives, Dear friends, We just received a call from our friendly CRPS Association from Australia "CRPS Network australia" for their own worldwide study on "time to Diagnosis/treatment at CRPS". Since this survey is completely in english, we have translated it into German and also make it available. The collected data is then Merged. Excerpt from the accompanying text of the Survey:

This survey is aimed at people all over the world who have been diagnosed with the complex regional pain syndrome.  To be able to participate, you must be 16 years or older (parents/guardians are encouraged to complete this survey on behalf of children under the age of 16 with CRPS diagnosis).

CRPS Patient Meeting Aachen

At the 18.05.2018, the Allianz CRPS global groups from Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Australia met in Aachen to collaborate on drug research for CRPS, patient studies on disease and on the global cooperation of CRPS Patients ' organisations.
The groups from the United Kingdom and the United States unfortunately could not be present at this meeting. The results are, of course, shared among themselves. The aim of the meeting was mainly to find out how studies on CRPS could be raised and how to gain people affected for these studies. DANEBN was concerned with the further evaluation of own patient studies of patient organisations.
