Trish, is a RN who feels it is important that health care professionals understand, first-hand, how chronic pain and occipital neuralgia patients live with their affliction. She wants treating professionals to understand, among other things, what these sufferers endure when while seeking relief from their chronic pain they are accused of being a drug-addict looking for a high.
She has created a questionnaire of 41 items that range from your diagnosis to the biggest obstacle you experience in getting quality care for pain control. With the information provided she will write an article for a nursing journal.
Completed questionnaires must be emailed to her no later than September 1st.
