Living with Chronic Pain is challenging as it impacts on every aspect of a person’s life. Accessing help and support can be difficult and stressful.
Here at Chronic Pain Ireland you are part of a community where you are understood, believed and supported. We continually advocate on your behalf and following the Irish Medical Council recommendation and the Dáil Joint Committee on Health & Children recommendation in 2014 that chronic pain be recognised as a medical specialty we hope that support services will become more widely available and accessing help more straightforward.
Through joining CPI we will keep you updated on the latest news and developments whilst continually striving for better services and supports.
