A study sponsored by DePaul University in Chicago is asking women with Fibromyalgia and/or chronic low back pain to complete a confidential and anonymous 225-question survey.

The study – “Assessing Attitudes Toward Health and Health Care” – is being conducted as part of DePaul’s Conventional and Alternative Care Treatment of Chronic Pain program.

Participation in the survey will help build a profile of patient demographics, experiences, attitudes, and behaviors, explains survey coordinator Cordelia Holbert. All information will be used to provide physicians with a better understanding of patients’ needs in order to provide them better treatment and healthcare services. Participants will also be able to receive a summary of the overall survey results and what they mean.
