null Timothy Wideman, PhD
Pain education • sensitivity to physical activity • knowledge translation • pain and disability
My research focuses on three themes: Understanding and targeting biopsychosocial risk factors for prolonged pain and disability; improving entry-level pain education for health professionals through large-scale knowledge translation initiatives; and developing person-centred approaches to pain assessment and management that help validate and support people living with pain.
