Pediatric survey

This survey is geared toward the primary caretaker of a child or children in chronic pain.  Pediatric pain isn't recognized or well-understood; we hope you can help us change that by participating in this survey.
The goal of this survey is to collect information so our organization can more accurately address and share the realities faced by children and families who experience chronic pain. This survey should take approximately 10 minutes.  Thank you for your time in filling out the survey and helping us make a difference.
