Research: Chronic Pain & Disordered Sleep

Mar 31, 2023


Chronic Pain Ireland are partnered with the University of Limerick (having been awarded a BMP Pain Research Grant) to look at the problem of poor sleep among people with chronic pain. The research project will look at ways to enhance sleep among people with chronic pain, especially considering options other than medication.
What is Involved
We are looking to recruit people with persistent pain to attend one of our world Café events which are being held online and in person.  A world Café creates an informal Café setting for participants to explore an issue by discussing it in small table groups.

The first world Café will be held at the University of Limerick from 10:30-12:30 on Tuesday, 25th April 2023, followed by lunch, which will be provided along with tea and coffee.

There will be further in-person and online world cafes, so if the first date does not suit you, please do continue to contact us so we can find a date that works for you.

  • The world Cafés will be held both online and in-person and will last approximately two hours.
  • The first world Café will be the in-person event at the University of Limerick, with more dates to be confirmed.
  • The days/times can be flexible to suit those involved and can be held at weekends/evenings if there is sufficient interest.
  • Participants will also receive a €30 voucher to reflect their time commitment to online world cafes and €50 for attending in-person world cafes.
  • For further information, including details on confidentiality and data protection, this can be provided via the contact details below.

If interested in participating please contact UL researcher Abigail Browne HERE to express your interest in hearing more.
