I am starting to meet researchers, academics, health care professionals and advocates in an effort to get a better understanding of the resources available for faculty and staff identifying as having Pain. It is truly impressive to hear what work is being done by such a tremendenous group of leaders right here in Halifax and as part of Dalhousie. It is also remarkable the dedication to the person as whole, not just the mechanics of the Pain and the desire to be part of the solution. As a person with Pain, it gives me the greatest sense of hope.
So, on behalf of one research team in particular, I am happy to pass along the following information regarding a current study:
Risk and Resilience in Children of Parents with Chronic Pain:
Parents with chronic pain and their children, ages 8-15 years, are needed for an IWK Health Centre and Nova Scotia Health Authority study. The study involves one 90-minute visit to their research centre. Parents and children will be compensated for their participation and travel expenses. Call or email to learn more! (902) 470-6906 or CPPRWest@IWK.nshealth.ca
