A very interesting quick read from the International Journal of Epidemiology:
Deborah Padfield’s work focuses on the use of images and photography to enable patients encountering chronic pain to express their condition to medical professionals looking after them.

Patients who encounter facial pain will frequently undergo surgery to try and address the cause. However, it is not uncommon that they may be left with residual neuropathic pain. Padfield’s work presents the immense potential that artwork can have on treatment and therapy in conjunction with both surgery and general medicine.
