Pain Management Support Study

Are you a cancer survivor with chronic pain?

If so, you may be eligible to participate in this study!


What is this research study about?

Pain in cancer survivors is difficult to treat. Opioids are often prescribed for pain management, yet they can have undesirable side effects and may put someone at risk for addiction or dependence. We want to examine if a pain management program that is music-based or verbal-based is more helpful in reducing pain and opioid use in cancer survivors with chronic pain.


What is involved?

• Take part in 10 weekly 45-minute pain management telehealth sessions.

• At three different time points in the study, you will be asked to fill out questionnaires related to your pain and opioid use. This will take approximately 15 minutes.



You will receive $40 for each of the three study measurements, totaling $120.

You will also receive $20 per therapy session, for an additional total of $200 for 10 therapy sessions.


Who can participate? You may be eligible to take part if you:

• Are a cancer survivor

• Have been using opioids for your chronic pain for more than 3 months


Where does the study take place?

Remotely via telehealth. Access to a computer with internet or a mobile phone with data or internet is required.
