The European Pain Federation, which is made up of chapters of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), represents over 740 people million people in 37 different countries. European Pain Management provides a review of the organization of pain care in the 37 member countries.

Leaders in each country offer a chapter on how their health and pain care services are organized, the demands of their specific populations, the specific national challenges they face, and examples of innovations and advances. After this comprehensive summary, key experts in the field discuss issues that are pertinent to all of the European nations ranging from working with young people to managing opioids and the rise of pain as a specialism. The final chapter pulls together themes from across the entire book, making a call to envision a new form of pain management for a new Europe, making European Pain Management the first authoritative summary, description, and coordinated challenge establishing the authority of pain centres in Europe.
