Parental pain and children's well-being




Introductory page

Research has shown that for parents with chronic pain, the impact of their illness often extends beyond their own health, such as to their children and family. For some children, living with a parent with chronic pain can play a negative role in their wellbeing, but for others it can be a positive experience. We hope that with your help, we can find out more about the factors that influence the experiences and well-being of children who have a parent with chronic pain.

Here's how it works:

Answer the eligibility questions on the next page, if you are eligible you will be directed to the survey. Answer the brief survey (it will only take 10-15 minutes) about your pain, pain-related experiences, and some questions about your child. At the end of the survey you will be asked if you want to be entered into a draw for a $100 CAD e-gift card. If you win an e-gift card and you are not in Canada, we will convert the $100 CAD to the currency of your country and will email the e-gift card to you. You will also be asked if you want to provide contact information so the research team can contact you in future for other research. The contact information is in no way linked to your survey results. Those results will remain totally anonymous.
