We're pleased to announce the winning research project of our David Bromham Seed Research Fund competition.
John Reynolds-Wright, working alongside Sharon Cameron at NHS Lothian/University of Edinburgh, have won £4,500 to support their research project that is centred around developing a validated pain measure for abortion care.
John Reynolds-Wright explains how he hopes his study will contribute to the care of patients during abortion procedures:
“Pain during abortion is poorly documented and studies of pain relief interventions are hampered by lack of consistent reporting. We hope this study will be a first step to developing a tool that can be used in research studies and in clinical care for the benefit of patients”
The competition aims to support the development of sexual and reproductive healthcare research ideas. Dr David Bromham was a previous President of the FSRH and left us a gift after his death, so an award could be given in his name.
"We are extremely grateful to have been awarded the David Bromham fund. We are planning to use the funds to start developing a validated pain measure for abortion care....We hope this study will be a first step to developing a tool that can be used in research studies and in clinical care for the benefit of patients."
The David Bromham Seed Research Fund will be open for applications in 2022. Keep an eye on our website awards page and our social media channels for more details on how to apply.
