Developing an online, interdisciplinary program for teenage chronic pain

30 October 2019

We are a team of researchers and clinicians from the University of Southampton and Great Ormond Street Hospital (Pain Control Service).

We are inviting teenagers aged 12-17 years with chronic/ persistent pain of any type (bone and joint conditions, arthritis, ongoing post-surgical pain, headaches, & many more), and their parents to contribute ideas to help us co-design an online program which will contain a range of pain management techniques. This will be a one-off informal interview.


Ethical approval

Approved by the Health Research Authority (NHS England), and the R&D department at Great Ormond Street Hospital. HRA reference: 253044, GOSH reference 19BO01.
