2. exploring how parents of young people with CRPS think about their child’s future (20-25 minute online survey)
The researchers will sending participants Amazon vouchers to thank them for their time.
How does communication with a doctor influences persistent pain management?
The research team is recruiting participants by advertising this survey to members of the general public who have had an experience with persistent pain. Participant's opinions on pain communication and pain medication will help them design education resources that can be made available to the public.
APMA has partnered with NPS MedicineWise to produce these best practice information sheets for people suffering nerve pain and their GPs treating neuropathic pain.
Nerve pain (also called neuropathic pain) is caused by damage or injury to nerves from conditions like shingles, diabetes, stroke and HIV. Nerve pain is different from other types of pain and simple pain medicines have little effect.
