Jonas Gravli, whose original search for amputees to take part in his research into Phantom Limb Pain was posted on the website in July this year and is available to see through the link below, is looking for more people willing to provide information that will further this investigation. Phantom Limb Pain is a horrible affliction and any findings which could impact positively on it are so valuable. If you haven’t already done so, please do consider adding your input to Jonas Gravli’s important research.
Experiencing Phantom Limb Pain?
Hi, my name is Jonas Ruud Gravli. I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Science in Health Psychology. I am personally interested in improving the treatment options available for people who experience post-amputation pain, particularly phantom limb pain. As such, I am currently researching the potential of online communities (such as this one) in supporting people living with phantom limb pain. Specifically, how you engage with the community, and how that could affect your experience of phantom limb pain and your daily life.
Some of you may recognise this study as it was a part of my master’s project during the 2018-2019 period. However, we did not get enough participants to examine the relationship between online support group participation properly. I am therefore continuing the research. Thank you to those of you that have filled out the questionnaire, there is no need for you to do so again, so please do not fill out the survey if you have already done so.
I would greatly appreciate it if you would take the time to complete an online survey, as we only have about half the number of participants needed. If you experience phantom limb pain to any degree and you are above the age of 18 years. It will only take 15 minutes at the very most and you will remain completely anonymous. As a mean to demonstrate my gratitude, we will be giving away five £10 (equivalent to about $12.88 American) online gift vouchers (of your choice) to five random participants of the study, once the study is completed. Hopefully by January.
Further information and access to the study, your involvement and the gift voucher will be provided to you through this link:
Without more participants, the study will lose its impact. I would therefore like to thank you for considering participating. If you have any questions, I am more than happy to answer them. Please contact me on my work email, firstname.lastname@example.org. I will not be responding to other forms of messaging, as per ethical guidelines.
Again, I would like to thank you for considering participating in the study. I hope to use this to contribute towards the improvement of phantom limb pain management.
