1) Warwick Study of Mental Defeat in Chronic Pain (WITHIN Project)

The Warwick Study of Mental Defeat in Chronic Pain (WITHIN Project) is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and is investigating how mental defeat can influence pain sensation, sleep patterns, social activity, physical activity and general health and wellbeing in individuals who have chronic pain.

We are currently looking for volunteers (UK-only) aged 18-65 with chronic pain conditions to complete a short online questionnaire. The questionnaire has three completion time points and participants will receive a £5 Amazon voucher for each time point that they complete.

In addition to this, we have recently launched our new 100% remote access Longitudinal Sleep-Tracking Study! As part of the Sleep Tracking Study, participants will get the opportunity to wear an ActiWatch for a 7-day tracking period, receive a personalised breakdown of their sleep and receive a £10 Amazon voucher. Please note, in order to participate in the Sleep-Tracking Study, participants must have completed our main questionnaire first.

2)  @EnTimeMentEU at UCL for Chronic Back Pain (Technology help)

@EnTimeMentEU needs research participants with chronic back pain to explore how technology can help at home; you’ll carry out everyday activities wearing motion-capture sensors, and then discuss it online.


Please see the picture for more information or you can contact @RaffaeleBuono on Twitter or email for more info. Please also use this email if you need an accessible form of this information.
