PAIN PILLS



The National Pain Foundation has announced that they are seeking participants in a new study about chronic pain.  Here is the official notice:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Seeking Study Participants

Do you have chronic pain that has lasted for six months or longer? If so, you may be eligible to participate in a research study to examine the effectiveness of the Pain Self-Management Program, a new internet-based pain self-help program for people with chronic pain.

The project is funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. The researchers are requesting help from 308 persons with chronic pain to test the program. The online program will be offered to you at no cost. The program will take six weeks to complete. You will be asked to fill out a set of online questionnaires on three occasions: prior to the program, immediately after completion, and three months after completion. The questionnaires contain questions concerning your current pain history and experience, your pain attitudes and coping strategies, your use of health care services, your physical activity level, and your emotional well-being. In addition, you will be asked to answer questions about the content of the program to determine how well you have learned the material. Brief (5 minute) daily assessments will also be required. You will receive $75 as compensation for your time in completing all assessments.

To qualify, please review the consent form at http://painmanagement.speedsurvey.com. You must have access to a computer with internet access, be between the ages of 18-80, and be able to speak, read, and write English. If you have questions or concerns about the study, you can contact Dr. Linda Ruehlman at ***@****.

I do not know anything about the study other than what can be read on their web sites, at www.nationalpainfoundation.org.
