Ageing with chronic pain: promoting age-friendliness in rural areas

Posted in: News on September 21, 2015

A new summary report has been published: Ageing with chronic pain: promoting age-friendliness in rural areas. The Research Institute for Primary Care and Health Sciences at Keele University and the Beth Johnson Foundation (BJF) co-hosted a stakeholder engagement workshop to share the results of two research projects. The research from Keele University explored personal experiences of living with chronic pain, pain of three or month duration, among rural dwelling older people. The research from BJF examined community assets within rural areas to promote healthy, age friendly communities. Both projects were conducted between years 2012 to 2015 in the Staffordshire Moorlands, which provided the setting for the workshop.
