Hi, I am a student with University of Ulster/South West College and am currently completing my thesis work in Evidence Based Practice: Post Operative Pain Management. I need participants who are due to have surgery soon, to complete three surveys; pre-surgery, post surgery and discharge. It does not matter what type of surgery you are having or if you have had surgery before. In essence I want to gather information from the patient viewpoint and clinicians to establish new methods of best practice for the patient. If you are able to participate it would be gratefully appreciated.
