Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing Public Lecture 1: Skills for all: Primary care and community-based chronic pain self-management

Chronic pain is a huge health challenge. It is the biggest reason people in the UK see their GP. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognised it as a priority disease in 2019. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has also recently accepted that current chronic pain medications have limited long-term benefit, and in fact carry serious safety concerns. That is why reducing opioid prescriptions (for non-cancer pain) to zero by 2024 is a priority for Public Health England.

Soil health and biodiversity

The positive correlation between soil health and underground biodiversity is relatively well understood and Diana Wall is a leading world expert in this area. However, the links between soil health with above ground biodiversity are less well understood. We will discuss these issues and consider the apparent disconnect between achieving net zero targets by building up carbon in soils and the effect this might have on biodiversity above and below ground.

Claims and Evidence

The evidence that we gain in a research study rarely provides a strong basis for making broad, generic generalized claims regarding what we have "discovered.” We shouldn’t be surprised, harshly judgmental, or even especially gloomy when weak empirical findings don’t “replicate.” I suggest we move to a slightly different way of thinking about all this.

Bringing Meaning and Authenticity to Collaboration

Working in collaboration with others can be witnessed in all domains of human and animal interaction.
