Dr. Rebecca Lee is a post-doctoral researcher at The University of Manchester, UK.
During her PhD, she worked on the development of a multi-dimensional mobile health iPad application for children and young people to report their pain daily, called My Pain Tracker. My Pain Tracker collects data remotely on pain intensity, severity, location, emotion and interference. The tool has been used in several studies, exploring its reliability/validity, investigating children and young people’s administrative preferences for such tools and looking into how healthcare professionals interpret the in-depth pain data collected. More recently, Dr Lee has turned her attention to the ways in which new assessment and communication tools, like My Pain Tracker, can be implemented into clinical practice. The current aim of her research is to develop a behaviour change intervention to facilitate more effective pain conversations between professionals, children, young people and their parents particularly in paediatric rheumatology.
