2018 Adolescent Pain Management Study
PhD candidate Rene Thomas of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Ill., is conducting an international adolescent pain management study. Data collected will be used to address the lack of research on pain management in the adolescent population. Further, data will be used to inform healthcare professionals about relevant changes on how pain management is achieved.
The study is looking for teenagers between the ages of 13 years and 18 years who experience chronic pain. Participants who are eligible for the study and who complete the questionnaire will receive a $10 Amazon gift card. Those who complete an interview will receive a $15 Amazon gift card.
