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 for 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.

To find out how to submit a review proposal, or to get involved as a peer reviewer, please visit our Resources pages. To find out more ways of getting involved with Cochrane, contact us or visit the Join Cochrane website.

The 2019 unofficial Impact Factor for PaPaS is 11.446 (56 publications cited 641 times).

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,

Dr Neil O'Connell and the editorial team
