Please help with a study on pain patient narratives

If you have a few minutes, I would greatly appreciate your help with a research project I am involved in. We need people to fill out an online survey.

This survey is part of a project studying how pain patient narratives are perceived by others and how these stories impact their treatment. The University of Southern California Health Sciences Campus Institutional Review Board has determined that this research is exempt.

We will first ask you a little bit about yourself. Then you will read several vignettes (short stories) from people describing their experiences with chronic pain. For each of these vignettes we will ask you questions about the impression you get of the person.

If you would like to participate, please go to http://painnarratives.adamswenson.net/index.php

Please share this link with anyone who might be willing to participate.
