Solving the Fibromyalgia Mystery: Researchers need your help.

Seeking people living with fibromyalgia, their families, caregivers and health professionals involved with helping them to share what is most important for fibromyalgia research.

Why are we doing this study?

The CIHR Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (IMHA) located at the University of Manitoba is funding a research project to help improve the treatment and quality of life of people with fibromyalgia. Responses to this survey will be used to identify the top research priorities of patients, caregivers and clinicians in the area of fibromyalgia. This study is being led by a steering committee which is made up of patients, caregivers, doctors, researchers, and staff members from CIHR IMHA, and a collaborator from the James Lind Alliance.

With this survey, we are inviting you to share your ideas about research to help improve the treatment and quality of life of people living with fibromyalgia. This survey has been approved by the University of Manitoba's Health Research Ethics Board and will take about 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

Who may take this survey?

To take part in this study, you must be 18 years of age or older and must be included in at least one of the following categories:
  1. Person who has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia;
  2. Caregiver (e.g., a spouse, relative or friend) of a person who has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia;
  3. Clinician or health care worker who cares for people with fibromyalgia (e.g., nurses, social workers, physicians, pharmacists, physiotherapists, etc.)
If you do not fit into any of these three categories, please do not complete this survey.
