Research call-out: Pain Characteristics and Management in Parkinson’s

Feb. 20, 2024

A joint research project on investigating the characteristics and treatment of pain in Parkinson’s by The University of South Australia and funded through an Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship and The Hospital Research Foundation Group – Parkinson’s.

This project is investigating:

  1. the characteristics of pain symptoms in people with Parkinson’s; and
  2. the practices of people with Parkinson’s in the management of pain.

It is expected that this research project will result in:

  1. a comprehensive profile of pain experienced by people with Parkinson’s;
  2. a deeper understanding of the needs of people with Parkinson’s in the management of pain symptoms; and
  3. a set of patient centred recommendations that advances the provision of pain care services in Australia.

Who can participate?

Persons that:

  • have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s;
  • have experienced pain symptoms in the past month;
  • are an Australian citizen or permanent resident currently living in Australia; and
  • are aged 18 years or older.

What does participation involve?

Participation involves completing an online survey. The survey includes questions about the nature of participants’ pain symptoms and the steps they have taken in managing their pain.
