About the study: This study aims to understand what people who are experiencing back pain think of their healthcare interactions (but people with and without back pain are eligible).

Back pain is the largest cause of disability in the world and understanding how treatments influence beliefs and behaviours is important. Such knowledge is particularly important when 1 in 5 people experience pain that persists for longer than 3 months.

The survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Age 18-80
  • Location: Anywhere
  • With or without back pain
  • Cannot be a healthcare practitioner working with people experiencing pain.

Benefits: There will be no direct benefits to you, but this study will provide important knowledge that will help us in the future to provide better care for people experiencing back pain.
