You are invited to participate in a project about chronic pain management in General Practice. This will involve a one-on-one interview with our GP researchers to share your experiences of managing patients with chronic pain including any challenges you have encountered, as well as your insights on what makes for good management of chronic pain in General Practice.
Participants will be partially compensated for the time taken for the interview with a payment of $150 plus GST. The interview will take a maximum of one hour and will occur at a time and place which is convenient to you.
The research is being conducted through the Division of General Practice at the School of Medicine at the University of Western Australia.
This study is supported by funds received from the RACGP Chris Silagy Scholarship Grant.

The University of Melbourne, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), Australian Association of Practice Management (AAPM), Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) and the VCS Foundation have undertaken a project for the Commonwealth Department of Health to understand how the primary healthcare workforce engages with the national cancer screening programs (bowel, breast and cervical).
Findings from this study have led to the development of communication materials to assist in boosting participation, education and engagement.
The current phase invites General Practitioners, practice managers and practice nurses to participate in a focus group discussion (via Zoom) to review and provide feedback on the developed communication materials. The focus group discussions will occur in early December 2020, with all participants receiving a $50 gift card for their time.
