DO YOU LIVE WITH CHRONIC PAIN?
You are being invited to take part in a research project.
The objective of this research project is to assess to which extent the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated restrictions affect the pain experience, treatments, various aspects of daily living, the emotional well-being, and the quality of life of people living with chronic pain in Canada.
It is expected that between 2000 and 3000 people across Canada will participate in this project.
If you agree to participate in the study, you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire, which should take you between 20 and 30 minutes of your time to complete. You are invited to answer all questions, as all your answers are important for the study. You can complete part of the questionnaire, and return to it at a later time.
