What is the purpose of this clinical trial?
A clinical trail such as this one, is used to learn about whether or not a new, non-medical intervention helps Veterans manage pain.
As you may know, there are many different types of research. But all must follow the rules of the Office of Human Research Protections, which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Will I have to pay to participate in the study?

Who is conducting the study?

I’m not sure the pain I have is the right kind of pain. Can I still participate?
To see if you qualify for the study, we will ask you some questions about you and your pain. If you qualify, we will invite you to take part in the study.
How long does the study last?
If you qualify for and decide to take part in the study, we'll ask you to stay involved for 12 months. When you first join, we'll ask you to complete a survey. Then, you will be given access to the program. You can use the program as often as you'd like for 6 months. We will then ask you to take another survey after those 6 months. We'll also ask you to take one last survey 6 months after that.
What if I join, but change my mind?
Whether you take part in this study or not is up to you. If you change your mind, you can drop out at any time.
