Summary

This study seeks to understand the challenges of managing chronic pain for adults older than 60 years of age who have dementia or memory issues. Chronic pain is any pain lasting longer than 3-months, such as arthritis pain. We would like to interview people who are either (1) experiencing dementia and chronic pain or (2) taking care of someone with dementia and pain. We will conduct interviews through Microsoft Teams. The interview should take about 60 minutes per person. Everyone participating in the interview will receive a $25 gift card.

Description

If you are interested in participating in this study, please email us at agewell@drexel.edu or provide your information at:  https://is.gd/DrexelPainStudy. (All information you provide to us through email or the website is encrypted and secure, and will not be shared with anyone).
 
Once we receive your information, we will contact you to discuss eligibility and schedule an interview.
 
At the scheduled interview, we will first ask about current pain. Then we will ask questions regarding previous pain management experiences. Finally, we will show a few treatments, and ask for your opinion on the treatments. 
 
All interviews will be recorded and transcribed. Then the research team will code the interviews to identify recurrent themes, which will help us understand perspectives of current pain treatments.
