Pain Narrative Study

This survey is part of a project studying how pain patient narratives are perceived by others and how these stories impact their treatment. The University of Southern California Health Sciences Campus Institutional Review Board has determined that this research is exempt.

How to Participate
We will first ask you a little bit about yourself. Then you will read several vignettes (short stories) from people describing their experiences with chronic pain. For each of these vignettes we will ask you questions about the impression you get of the person.

If you would like to participate, please go to
