A thematic exploration of patient and radiation therapist solutions to improve comfort during radiotherapy: A qualitative study (2023)
Journal Article
Goldsworthy, S., Latour, J. M., Palmer, S., McNair, H. A., & Cramp, M. (in press). A thematic exploration of patient and radiation therapist solutions to improve comfort during radiotherapy: A qualitative study. Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jmir.2023.07.008

A feasibility randomised controlled trial of a Fibromyalgia self-management programme for adults in a community setting with a nested qualitative study (FALCON) (2022)
Journal Article
Pearson, J., Coggins, J., Derham, S., Russell, J., Walsh, N. E., Lenguerrand, E., …Cramp, F. (2022). A feasibility randomised controlled trial of a Fibromyalgia self-management programme for adults in a community setting with a nested qualitative study (FALCON). BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, 23, Article 656. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12891-022-05529-w

Background: Fibromyalgia is a condition associated with widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and sleep problems. Fibromyalgia treatment guidelines recommend non-pharmacological interventions and the development of self-management skills. An examp...
