Long-term chronic pain relief research
Studies suggest large numbers of children worldwide are living with long-term pain. Effects can be far reaching, for both the children and their families. Lauren Heathcote, a young researcher at the University of Oxford, is determined to help. She is investigating whether a possible new approach to treatment, involving specially designed computer games, has the potential to give children much-needed relief from long-lasting pain.
