Breaking Barriers — The Project

Self-man­age­ment – we know it’s one of the things that can most improve the lives of peo­ple liv­ing with pain, but all too often it’s not being put into prac­tice successfully.

After speak­ing to peo­ple with pain and health­care pro­fes­sion­als, we’ve been able to put togeth­er a clear­er pic­ture of what is going wrong and how we might make things better.

Watch the videos below. 

You can read a short inter­view with Pain Con­cern Researcher Katy Gor­don about the study here.

Tran­scripts are avail­able for all the videos
