Clinical Associate Professor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests While my research spans multiple topics in chronic pain and treatment, two specific foci are pain catastrophizing and developing low-cost pain treatments that improve access to pain care. In 2013 I married these lines of interest and developed a single-session 2-hour class to treat pain catastrophizing (Darnall et al, J Pain Res, 2014; also see ‘treatment’ at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pain_Catastrophizing). I am now examining pre-surgical delivery of the class and testing post-op outcomes.
