Hello and welcome to the Cochrane Pain, Palliative and Supportive Care Review Group (PaPaS)

PaPaS is one of 53 review groups specialising in different areas of health, based in different countries around the world. The group is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) in the United Kingdom as part of the Research and Development programme. We are part of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international not-for-profit and independent organization. The Cochrane Collaboration is dedicated to providing up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare that is readily available worldwide.

Our aim at PaPaS is to encourage and assist authors to write systematic reviews in a topic area relevant to our group for publication in The Cochrane Library. You can read more about the background of the group and our scope on our 'Background' page.

The 2013 IMPACT FACTOR for PaPaS is 7.184.

We hope that you will find all the information you need on our website. For the latest news from PaPaS, please visit the What's New page, and for a list of all of our reviews see below.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any enquiries. 

Best wishes,

Professor Chris Eccleston and the editorial team
