Glasgow Caledonian University looking for employees with chronic pain for study

Are you an employee with chronic pain working for a company with less than 250 employees? Or do you know someone who is?

Then Glasgow Caledonian University would like to hear from you!

Around 43% of people in the UK have chronic pain (pain lasting greater than 3 months) which can result in absenteeism and employment issues. Researchers lack the perspective of employees working for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) - companies with less than 250 employees. This is problematic given SMEs constitute 99.8% of all UK businesses. Glasgow Caledonian University are conducting interviews with SME employees with chronic pain and SME employers to understand their needs in relation to keeping employees with chronic pain at work. Your contribution will aid us to help support people with chronic pain to remain in employment.


What will I have to do?

Participation involves answering a brief questionnaire and a 1-hour online interview.
