About the Event
In May we will be talking about understanding pain. Pain scientists are starting to think differently about pain and its causes. We are delighted to have Dr Deirdré Rohlandt join us to explore some of these exciting discoveries and how knowledge about pain can help influence your pain and what you do about it.
Some of these concepts may be challenging and uncomfortable, but without challenges how we grow and get stronger? Come with an open mind, curiosity and a healthy dose of scepticism.
Please have a piece of paper and something to write with - different colours are always fun. There will be an opportunity to have your questions answered, even if these aren't related to the topic of managing pain.
Deirdré is a Gynaecologist with an interest in persistent pain and says, "I am quite new to this and am still learning every day, but also very excited about the amazing complexity of us humans. I work with two colleagues who also care for people with endometriosis. I enjoy mountain biking, running and cooking. I live with my husband and Staffordshire Terrier called Murphy. She loves being a trail dog when we go biking. Like many clinicians who work in chronic pain, I have had long-standing pain myself. Understanding pain has been immensely helpful to me personally".
Whether you suspect you have endometriosis, are newly diagnosed, or have been living with this condition for a while this evening chat will be great for you at any stage of your endometriosis journey. Or you could have someone in your life who suspects they have endometriosis or is diagnosed and you want to learn more about managing pain.
