euCPSP project

The euCPSP project is a European observational study on the incidence and characteristics of chronic post surgical pain. It is supported by the European Society of Anaesthesiology’s Clinical Trial Network (ESA-CTN) and aims at investigating the following research questions:

  1. What is the incidence of chronic post surgical pain (CPSP) in Europe?
  2. What are the risk factors of chronic post surgical pain (CPSP) related to surgery, patient and anaesthesia management?
  3. What are the differences in incidence and risk factors in different European countries?
