September is Pain Awareness Month and the country’s largest patient advocacy organization for the pain community wants to hear what you think about pain.
Health Union, LLC is partnering with the U.S. Pain Foundation to conduct the Chronic Pain in America 2019 survey to get a better understanding of how people with chronic health conditions experience pain, how they navigate healthcare systems, and their experiences managing and treating chronic pain. This survey may take 15 – 20 minutes to complete
To take the survey, go here.
Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You will resume where you left off.
All survey responses become property of Health Union, LLC, and are kept completely anonymous, confidential, and reported in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually).
The National Pain Report strongly believes that the voice of the chronic pain patient is too often not heard, so we encourage to take the survey.
We will report on results once they are tabulated.
Occasionally people ask us at the National Pain Report why we promote these types of surveys.
One simply reason: knowledge is power.
Surveys like this help raise awareness of what chronic pain patients are going through and can help inform public policy makers, providers and the general public of the unique challenges of living with chronic illness.
It’s also why we encourage you to comment on our stories, those comments are being read. To get the pain story out, it needs to be told repeatedly by chronic pain patients, their families and providers.
The U.S. Pain Foundation is dedicated to serving the 50 million Americans who live in chronic pain through free programs and services.
We urge you to take the survey.
