Pain Scale Survey

As you may already know, ICA is a member of a steering committee of patient advocates advising Grünenthal, a pharmaceutical company that is interested in pain.

Together we have designed a pain survey to better understand from the patient’s perspective how doctors and other health care professionals assess adults living with chronic pain. We are interested in hearing your perceptions about and experience with pain assessment. We are also interested in your thoughts about your doctor’s or other health care professional’s evaluation of your chronic pain.  Our goal is to build understanding of effective pain evaluation and to work toward enhanced standards of care for people living with pain based on real world experience.

We very much hope you will want to take part in this important study. We respect your privacy and will not disclose any personally-identifiable information to the agency partner administering the survey for us, or to Grünenthal representatives. Findings will be summarized in a combined report to ensure your answers remain anonymous.

You may reach out directly to Jaclyn Nullman ( for more information or technical support.

Thank you for helping us raise the voice of the patient through this initiative.
