Chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP) is a common condition, often consulted in general practice. Our previous study identified research priorities among people with CMP using a broad recruitment strategy. It is unclear whether these research priorities reflect specific settings, including the population in general practice. Potential dissimilarities may have important implications for future research. Therefore, the study aims to explore potential differences between the previously established research priorities compared to priorities of people with CMP consulting general practice.
