Pain Concern Podcast

The WITHIN team were delighted to welcome Paul Evans, the host of Airing Pain Podcast, to the Warwick Sleep and Pain Lab for a podcast episode.

Paul interviewed our WITHIN Team members (Principle Investigator: Prof Nicole Tang, Research Fellow: Dr Kristy Themelis, PhD Student: Jenna Gillett and Research Assistant: Paige Karadag) and two of our study participants about the study, as well as taking part in the study as a participant himself.

Paul talks to the team about their experimental, lab-based study and the sleep-tracking survey, then undergoes the lab experiment himself. Afterwards, he discusses how he found it and the possible outcomes of the research. He also interviews other participants on their experience.

Research into mental defeat is in its early stages. It is hoped that the WITHIN Project will generate important information to help us further understand the influence that mental defeat has on distress and disability in chronic pain patients. This is essential listening for anyone wanting to know more about the research process, or wanting to participate.
