An Opioid Survey and a Maternal Chronic Pain Study

Opioid Survey re Overdose Epidemic

This is an inclusive survey for all opioid users (legitimate or illegal), their family members, and physicians. It seems designed to capture a comprehensive snapshot of the situation.

We’re interested in hearing about how the opioid epidemic and the public health response to it are affecting patients and doctors, family members and addicts.

This survey will be used by the Bend Bulletin, a daily newspaper in Bend, Oregon, to gather information on how the opioid epidemic has impacted different types of people, and to track how efforts to address the crisis are impacting them.

A unique characteristic of the survey is that it does not assume you are either a patient of a person with addiction, but lets you state your relationship to these drugs:  

Which of the following best describes you? (check all that apply) *

  • Chronic pain patient
  • Use prescription drugs recreationally
  • Use heroin
  • Addicted/dependent on opioids
  • Family member of someone who used prescription pain medications or heroin
  • Physician
  • Dentist
  • Other health care professional
  • Decline to answer
  • Other:

Below is a Stanford online study looking for participants:

Maternal Chronic Pain Study | Advancing Research in Pediatric Pain (ARPP) Lab | OHSU

We are actively seeking participants for the Maternal Chronic Pain study!

Researchers at OHSU, Stanford, and Seattle Children’s Hospital are collaborating on the Maternal Chronic Pain (MCP) study.

The purpose of the MCP Study is to learn more about the impact of maternal chronic pain on mothers and their children.

Results from this study will help us learn more about the experiences of mothers with chronic pain and their children’s experiences. Results will be used to develop interventions to help mothers with pain and their families.

Participants will complete online questionnaires and electronic diaries. Compensation is provided.

This study might be a good fit for you if:

  • You are a mother who has had chronic pain for 6 months or longer
  • You have a child between the ages of 8 and 12 years old

    They (bend) still have one for ALL of us, not just mothers/parents. Providers are welcome to answer too. A link is in their new article here:

    Here’s a direct link to the survey article page:

    I gave the link to the original article because it’s a heart wrenching read but also an example of people reporting unbiasedly on our side.

      Ahh sorry I’m only seeing the top half of articles on my phone’s browser. Disregard first part, but the article is still well written (though as I said warning as some of its really sad and there’s a suicide featured.)
