The treatment of neuropathic (or mixed) pain: the results of the survey

In the framework of the GAPP project a questionnaire has been developed by the Erasmus Universitair Medisch Centrum Rotterdam (EMC) team (Saskia de Wildt, Tjitske van der Zanden and Tom de Leeuw) together with Florentia Kaguelidou (APHP, Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Paris) to find out more about nowadays practice according to the treatment of neuropathic pain in children.

The questionnaire has been shared with all GAPP partners and distributed to the European Society of Pediatric Anesthesiology (ESPA) and to the Special Interest Group (SIG) on Pain in Children from the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP).

Till now 155 responses have been received, of which 41 persons completed the questionnaire, while 114 persons partially filled in it: from Europe 54, USA 42, Canada 19, Australia/NZ 5, Asia 8 and from Africa 3 responders. In particular, members of the Pediatric Pain List commented about the choice of medication, which might be explained by differences in medication available and used between the USA/Canada and Europe.

Please find below the schedule responders which were from different specialties.

Further analysis will take place and the EMC will keep the GAPP-colleagues informed with the results.
