Participants wanted - Griffith University study on chronic pain

Do you have pain which has developed in the last 12 months?

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO TAKE PART IN THIS IMPORTANT RESEARCH.

We are interested in why some people develop chronic pain and how individuals cope with pain that persists. The study aims to help health practitioners identify people who may be at risk of developing long-term persistent pain and associated complications such as disability (physical and social) and mental health issues.

You will be asked to complete a questionnaire at three points in time. The first questionnaire should be completed now and then you will receive reminders to complete a second questionnaire in three months and again in six months.

The questionnaire covers a wide range of topics, including your diagnosis, pain levels, physical symptoms, your background and other related factors.

The first questionnaire will take you approximately half an hour to complete.

You can complete the questionnaires online, on the telephone or via a questionnaire booklet.
