ACPA Survey:
Understanding Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is a research study to determine how effective a new or experimental treatment is in reducing symptoms such as pain, improving functioning, and improving overall quality of life for those who have the symptom or disease such as persistent pain.

In this survey, we would like to learn about your knowledge, experience, and interest in being included in clinical trials. We assure you that completing the questionnaire is in no way committing you to participating in any clinical trial. Your responses will be combined with all others and we will not share any of the information you provide with anyone or identify you in any way to others. Your help is appreciated. Thank you!
