Share Your Pain and Pain Management Experience with the CDC
The CDC is soliciting stakeholders’ perspectives and experiences with pain and pain management. They would include patients, patients’ family members and/or caregivers, and healthcare providers who care for patients with pain or conditions that can complicate pain management.
CDC will be holding approximately 100 individual conversations with stakeholders over the phone or through an internet-enabled virtual platform. Those interested in participating should email the following information to InjuryCenterEngage@cdc.gov:
- Full name
- Whether you would be participating primarily as a healthcare provider, patient, or family member and/or caregiver
- If you are a healthcare provider, please describe whether you care for patients with chronic pain, acute pain, and/or conditions that can complicate pain management (e.g., opioid use disorder or overdose)
- If you are a patient, please identify if you mostly experience acute or chronic pain and if you feel opioid pain medications have mostly helped you, mostly harmed you, neither, or an even mix of both
- If you are a family member and/or caregiver, please identify if the person you care for experiences acute or chronic pain and if you feel opioid pain medications have mostly helped or mostly harmed them, neither, or an even mix of both
The deadline is 5:00 p.m. EDT August 21, 2020.
