Hi Mandy – I’m a PhD student at the University of Wollongong (NSW) and I also am looking at health literacy in the management of chronic pain, specifically people living with arthritis. I’m using mixed methodology, the first phase of my study was a series of semi-structured interviews with a range of people with arthritis, including those from CALD backgrounds. That certainly offered some challenges!
I’d be interested in discussing qualitative research in this area, but note that this is a very quiet group. Maybe we can get some energy around this going!
