About us

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


PaPaS is based in Oxford, UK, and is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) as part of the Research and Development programme. We are one of more than 50 Cochrane review groups that specialise in different areas of health based in different countries around the world. Cochrane is an international not-for-profit and independent organization 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.

The 2017 IMPACT FACTOR for PaPaS is 7.286.

We hope that you will find all the information you need on our website. For the latest news from PaPaS, please visit the News page.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any enquiries. 

Best wishes,

Professor Chris Eccleston and the editorial team
