Title “SPS ® Pain Specialist

At the same time as applying for membership, it is possible to apply for the title “SPS Pain Specialist”.

The title promotes the recognition of specific qualifications and competencies of SPS members in the field of pain medicine and does not affect the treatment fees in the health care system. The Society sees this title as an important step towards better recognition of pain medicine in Switzerland and towards quality promotion.
