ROAM Study

We are actively recruiting participants for the ROAM study.

Research on the Adolescent Management of Pain

Background information

Researchers at OHSU are trying to better understand how an acute injury or pain problem affects the lives of teens and their families.

This study is designed to help investigators learn more about pain and pain treatment in teens.


Participants involved in this study will be asked to fill out online questionnaires and complete a brief phone interview every six months over the course of two years. Compensation will be provided to participants.

How will I know if this study is a good fit for me?

  • You are between 14-18 years old
  • You have been seen recently for an acute pain problem or surgery
  • You currently live half of the time with a parent/guardian willing to participate in research with you


Participating families can earn up to $400 dollars for their time.
