"Psychosocial Influences in the Development of Cumulative Trauma Disorders"
Participants are needed for a study being conducted by ASHT member Jim King entitled, “Psychosocial Influences in the Development of Cumulative Trauma Disorders.”  The purpose of the study is to explore the life experiences of individuals with work-related cumulative trauma disorders.

The purpose of the study is to explore the life experiences of individuals with work-related cumulative trauma disorders. The goal is to gain insight into injured workers’ perspectives on the development of arm / hand pain, the related concerns and struggles experienced in reporting the injury, and the consequences and impact that the injury has on their lives.

This is a qualitative study - I am looking for CTD patients who meet the inclusion criteria to participate in a one-hour interview with me (face-to-face, skype or FaceTime). The main criteria for participation is a diagnosis of CTD (surgical or non-surgical) impacting the person to the degree that work is restricted and he or she is receiving (or has received) workers comp or short term disability. Participants must speak English and be over 21. Participants will receive a $25 gift card for their participation.
