RECRUITING:: Young adults’ experiences of seeking information about chronic pain using the internet and social media Young adults’ experiences of seeking information about chronic pain using the internet and social media Researchers at the University of Southampton are seeking young adults (aged 16-24 years) to take part in a study exploring people’s experiences of searching the internet for information about chronic pain (sometimes called ‘persistent’ or ‘long-term’ pain). Some examples of chronic pain include fibromyalgia, persistent headaches, and joint pain. This study is an interview study, which uses online video calling – you do not have to download anything, you can use a regular web browser to take part. This ‘interview’ is not an assessment. It is a one-to-one conversation with a researcher about your experiences of searching the internet for pain-related information and support. This conversation will last for approximately 1 hour. People who complete the study will be rewarded with a £20 e-voucher. If you are interested in taking part, you would first need to take part in a 10-minute ‘screening’ interview to check that the type of pain you have is ‘chronic’ and answer any questions you have. Please email Anna ([email protected]), if you would like to take part or would like any further information.
