Abstract

With reference to the article "Assessment of the efficiency of the clinical management of neuropathic pain in specialist clinics compared to general clinics in neurology health care units in Spain" by Matias-Guiu et al, a reflection is made on the methodological and operational difficulties of working with results in health, quality of life or costs in something so subjective as pain, and its impact on daily life. It then highlights the importance of the decision to establish a specialist clinic or other type specific care team for neuropathic pain, adding another level of care. Some points are given for the analysis of that decision.
