What do chronic pain patients and pain management clinicians believe should be the role of a pain coach?

Trial Reference Number
Trial Status
Closed to Recruitment
Adult Participants, Chronic Pain, CRPS, Lower Limb CRPS, Online, Treatments, Upper Limb CRPS, Young People

What is the purpose of this study?

The term “pain coach” is currently unregulated. This means anyone can call themselves a pain coach regardless of their training or background. Pain coaches in the literature range from clinicians with 20+ years of experience in pain management, to individuals with 3 hours of training. To help better understand what a pain coach should do and the training they require, researchers at Teesside University are looking to interview/survey chronic pain patients to assess their perception of what the role of a pain coach should be, and what training would be required to achieve that. In this way, the term pain coach could become more standardised and this work can lay the foundation for development of future training courses for pain coaches.

Researchers at Teesside University and PAIND are looking for people living with chronic pain to complete a less than 10 minute survey to give their opinions on what role a pain coach should serve in supporting people with chronic pain. You will then have the option to expand on your answers, if you choose, in an interview.
