Chronic pain university study

Have you suffered from chronic pain and have been prescribed long-term opioid medication as a result of this?

I’m conducting a research project at the University of Derby, which is exploring the experiences of individuals who have been on opioid medication for at least 6 months or longer due to chronic pain. Opioids are often used as medicines because they contain chemicals that relax the body and can relieve pain. Many people get prescribed opioid medication for chronic pain as the main treatment pathway for living with the pain. Some examples of opioid medication are codeine, tramadol, fentanyl, oxycodone, buprenorphine etc. The study will involve an interview being conducted remotely via Microsoft Teams/ Skype and a series of questions being asked by the researcher regarding your experiences with the opioid medication. The interview will take under 1 hour to complete. The interviews will be audio recorded for research purposes and all identifiable information will be removed from the study. Please note if you do not feel comfortable with an interview, I could arrange an alternative.

Please contact me for further information.
