Results of Chronic Pain Study
Last August a University of Maryland doctoral student, who was doing her dissertation research on chronic pain, invited us to take part in a study to explore the effects of writing about chronic pain on mental and physical health.
I'm happy to tell you that Katie, the UMD student/researcher, was kind enough to come back here to HealthCentral to thank those who participated and to share the results of her study with us. You can read the results here: “Results of my dissertation research on chronic pain”
Along with Katie, I'd like to thank those of you who took the time to participate in the study. I'd also like to express my appreciation to Katie for making chronic pain the focus of her doctoral dissertation. It's encouraging to know there are people out there who care and are interested in learning how to help those of us who live with chronic pain.
