Since 2017, PAE has been conducting annual surveys to collect important data about the impact of pain on the lives of more than 400,000 individual chronic pain patients. PAE’s previous surveys were focused on diagnosis, treatment, and impact of pain (2017), pain and work (2018), and pain and stigma (2019).
The PAE 2020 survey asks what people living with chronic pain think of e-health and e-health apps/solutions and how these might benefit them and their relations with their healthcare providers.
The results of this survey will give PAE and its members input to help improve e-Health and e-Health apps for the benefit of the patients.
From the results of this survey, it has been concluded that using electronic methods to support their health is not well known amongst people living with chronic pain. Those who are using apps believe that they improve their health outcomes and relationships with their doctors.
The complete analysis report is published on the PAE website here.
PAE is presenting its poster about chronic pain and the use of e-health and m-health solutions at the IASP Virtual Series.
