Communicating chronic pain: Interdisciplinary methods for non-textual data
Dr Jen Tarr (18-06-14)
Chronic pain affects nearly 10 million Britons and can result in time off work and poor quality of life for many of them. Diagnosing and treating chronic pain can be particularly difficult relying heavily on the patient’s ability to communicate their symptoms to health professionals who must then listen and interpret those symptoms. New NCRM funded research by Dr Jen Tarr and colleagues from the London School of Economics have been examining innovative non-verbal ways of communicating pain to see whether pain can be expressed through more than just words.
