All-Europe Pain Patients’ Survey

INTRODUCTION:

The charity members of Pain Alliance Europe (PAE) are inviting people with chronic pain or their carers to fill in this short survey on the cause of their pain and its severity – and the various places where they have received or are receiving their treatment.

PAE will then create a report comparing the pain patients’ experiences in different countries that can help make politicians and policy makes be more aware of the important issue of chronic pain.

* 4. How long was it between your first visit to a healthcare professional about your condition and getting a diagnosis?

* 5. Do you have other health conditions (co-morbidities), i.e. other conditions for which you are having treatment?

* 6. Questions about your chronic pain:
What caused your chronic pain (underlying condition)? Choose one that best describes your problem:

* 7. How long has your pain lasted? 

* 10. Has your family doctor given you a referral to additional therapy?

* 15. Where are you currently receiving your pain management from? (Tick all applicable)

* 24. If you have said ‘yes’ to any of the last three questions, please type in your email address. Your e-mail address will only be used for the purpose you have selected. It will not be given to third parties.
