I will be sharing my Ph.D. research during the next 30 days #Covid19 lockdown, while I wait for my Ph.D. defence!

My Ph.D. mainly aimed to improve pain care in Nepal.

Paper 3: Clinimetric properties of the Nepali version of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS). We found a 2 factor structure for the Nepali PCS. The scale is reliable and valid. @DovePress
