Chronic Pain and Post Polio Syndrome Research Project

- Monday, May 1, 2017 - Saturday, September 30, 2017

Master of Clinical Psychology student Kristine Koh and supervisor Dr Toby Newton-John are from the University of Technology Sydney. They are conducting a research project and would like to invite people with Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS) who are experiencing chronic pain to take part. They are hoping to recruit between 100 and 200 participants.


This research is investigating the pain experiences of people with PPS and seeks to identify the different coping strategies used to manage chronic pain in daily life. It is also hoped that this research can shed light on how the use of different coping strategies affects the experience of chronic pain and PPS. It is an important area that has not been adequately investigated, and this research project will extend the scientific study of PPS. We hope to use the information in order to significantly improve quality of life, for people with PPS and chronic pain.
