Project Description

A Framework for Successful Pain Measurement in Clinical Trials

Many chronic pain conditions are more prevalent in women and pain has also been found to have a significant impact on women’s sexual health. While the reason for this increased prevalence of pain conditions in women is unclear, studies suggest biological, psychological and sociocultural differences may be contributing factors. Current treatment options for many pain conditions remain limited, so addressing pain-related women’s health needs requires new research.

Due to its complex nature, designing a study that effectively measures pain intensity and/or relief can be challenging. Health Decisions offers these considerations based on previous experience managing pain trials.
