Benefits of joining chronic pain support groups or becoming a patient ambassador include:
Anyone with access to the internet or a smartphone can be a resource for support. This can be invaluable for people living in rural areas that are under-served with face-to-face support groups.
Chronic pain support groups give patients options around privacy so others do not know intimate details of their pain, symptoms, and treatment plans if they are uncomfortable sharing.
With online support groups and people in all time zones across the world, there are always people awake when patients need them.
