A team of researchers at the University of New Brunswick, led by Dr. Diane LaChapelle, is interested in hearing your first-hand account of how living with chronic pain has impacted your life within your police organization. If you are an English speaking man or woman aged 21 or over, live with chronic pain (>3 months), and are currently working as an RCMP officer, you can participate in this study.
Participating will involve completing a very brief questionnaire (e.g., your age, type of chronic pain) and taking part in an audiotaped individual interview (about an hour) all over the telephone. Any information you provide will be strictly confidential; no identifying information will be disclosed. Our research lab is not affiliated with any police service. As a thank-you for your time, you will be given a $20 e-gift card.
If you would like more information about the study or to participate in this study, please contact our research team at rehablabUNB@gmail.com.
