Seeking Volunteers for Participation in Anonymous Online Survey
Regarding Online Social Support:

Hello! I am a graduate student conducting research on interpersonal communication. I am looking for volunteers to complete a short (15 minute) online survey assessing supportive messages you have received through this or other websites. This research project will help understand the types of messages online that are most beneficial to those suffering from chronic pain. Results from this study will provide a foundation for understanding how individuals use online support groups and how the messages they receive may impact their health and well- being.

You may participate if: 1) you are at least 18 years old, and 2) you have experienced some form of chronic pain for at least one year.

The survey itself will ask you a few questions about your visits to helpful websites and messages you have received from others on the website. It will also ask you some questions about your quality of life. This survey is completely anonymous and voluntary. Even if you decide to begin the survey, you may quit at any time or skip any questions you wish not to answer.

I greatly appreciate your participation in advance. The survey link is below if you would like to participate:

Thank you so much!

(*Note: This study has been approved by ethics review board at my university and site administrator Peter Waite)
