Welcome | Cochrane Pain, Palliative and Supportive Care Group


The PaPaS Review Group was registered with the Collaboration on the 28th January 1998. Exploratory meetings for the PaPaS Review Group were held on the 3rd of June 1996 (Oxford) and the 22nd of June 1997 (Boston). Mr Phil Wiffen was involved in the set-up of the PaPaS Review Group and held the post as Co-ordinating Editor until March 2008 when he stepped down to become an Editor for PaPaS. Chris Eccleston, one of our long standing Editors, then took up the post as Co-ordinating Editor in April 2008.


We are interested in studies of interventions for

• Acute pain arising accidentally or through deliberate injury
• Chronic pain (lasting 3 months or longer)
• Headache and migraine
• Palliative care for those with life-limiting disease or illness
