This pilot study will be a convenience sample from trauma inpatients at the Sunnybrook Campus. The purpose of the study is twofold: to investigate the prevalence of chronic pain that develops in the trauma population at Sunnybrook, and to see if neuropathic pain exists in this population, acute and/or chronically.
