UNB Researchers are looking for partners of individuals with chronic pain to complete an anonymous online survey that is expected to take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. The purpose of the survey is to validate a new questionnaire that focuses on partners' adjustment to their spouse's chronic pain. All partners who complete the survey will be given the chance to enter a draw for a $25 Amazon gift card (one in 12 odds). 

Partners are eligible to participate if they are currently in a co-habitating romantic relationship of at least one year with a patient who experiences chronic pain (e.g., arthritis, back pain, neuropathic pain syndromes, migraines, muscle pain syndromes). They must also be at least 21 years old, fluent in English, reside in North America, and have Internet access. Partners who themselves have chronic pain are not eligible to participate.

Please pass on the study information to other eligible individuals you know! If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact PhD Student Kirsten Gullickson at or (306) 501-4571.

Approved by the UNB Research Ethics Board (#2018-065).
