Hi Kristin and Natasha. You may have noticed that this has not been a very active group to date! However I would like to start some discussion about the topic of qualitative research on chronic pain. Are you involved in any projects in this area?
I am currently employed in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. I completed my docotoral thesis on living with chronic pain last year. It was a qualitative study which was looking at the interplay between the social environment and the individual with pain. This year I am working on some qualitative studies in spinal pain and patient education. I am very interested in developing my understanding of health literqcy and chronic pain.
