With the kind permission of Peter Waite, I would like to introduce myself and let you know about an online research survey we are conducting.
I am involved in chronic pain research (have been since 2006) at the School of Psychology, National University of Ireland, Galway (Centre for Pain Research http://www.nuigalway.ie/centre_pain_research/) where I am completing a PhD. My mother is a physiotherapist and my sister has lived wtih pain from various sources for over ten years - so I guess I've seen a variety of perspectives on the reality of living with persistent pain. It strikes me that there is a great deal more to learn about it all!
We are conducting a survey study and would be very grateful for any volunteers to fill in the online questionnaire.
We value the input of hundreds of people who already took part in study 1 and would like to invite you to take part in stage 2 of this research (whether you were involved before or not). Your responses will provide us with information about different styles of adjustment to ongoing pain and we would appreciate your involvement as it will contribute to our understanding of chronic pain and may inform approaches to treatment and management.
