About the Project

We would like to offer a unique opportunity for a student to develop a novel research are that combines pain, hope and narrative. The idea would be to continue past research of Dr Soundy. The studies would be represented in some shape or form like:

Study 1: Review around pain and hope and narratives

Study 2: Investigation into how clinicians view hope and chronic spinal pain and what stories are important to them.

Study 3: Investigation into the narratives of people with chronic spinal pain.

Study 4: Protocol development for a storytelling intervention feasibility study for either clinicians or people with chronic spinal pain

Study 4b: A qualitative study to consider the experiences of people about the intervention so qualitative data to be collected before, during and after. 

Funding Notes

Students applying will need to be self-funded or supported. There is no funding available for this project.
