Strategies to Assist with Management of Pain (STAMP) Study

University of Utah (Salt Lake City, Ut) Study Site

About the Study:

stampstudy

We are currently inviting people who are looking for help with managing their chronic lower back pain to participate in this study.

Become part of a study to learn new skills designed for people with back pain.

You can be part of an 8-week training program to learn one of two methods that may help you better cope with chronic lower back pain and live a more fulfilling life.

With one method you will learn to reduce your negative reactions to pain. With the other, you will learn how to change your thoughts and feelings associated with pain.

Your study involvement would be in addition to your medical care. You will not need to change any of your current treatments or medications.

This study is a collaborative effort among the University of Wisconsin (Madison, WI), University of Utah (Salt Lake City, UT) and Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA).

The study is being held in three cities: Madison, Salt Lake City, and Boston. For the Salt Lake City study site this study is being conducted virtually and at different clinics.

If you are interested in learning more about the study or finding out if you qualify, please give us a call at 801-834-5748 or email us at  STAMPstudy@utah.edu for the Salt Lake City study site.
