Summary This PhD project will focus on tools that identify and measure pain and validating these in children with cerebral palsy as well as developing innovative methods using technology to measure pain in children who are unable to self-report.
Supervisor: Adrienne Harvey
Pain is increasingly being recognised as a significant issue for children with cerebral palsy (CP) and other developmental disabilities, yet is under identified and consequently managed sub optimally in this population. In addition, there are limitations with current methods of measuring pain in children who are unable to self-report due to cognitive and/or communication limitations. This PhD project will focus on tools that identify and measure pain and validating these in children with cerebral palsy as well as developing innovative methods using technology to measure pain in children who are unable to self-report.
We hope to recruit a high quality allied health, nursing or medical professional into this PhD position and experience in disability is desirable. Interested applicants should email Associate Professor Adrienne Harvey at: email@example.com
