Stakeholder Consensus Event
Starting a family when you have an autoimmune
rheumatic disease: The STAR Study
25th of January 2017, 10am – 4pm,
Park Plaza Hotel, Cardiff

As part of the STAR Family Study at Cardiff University, we're looking at the challenges women with chronic pain face and the support they need when planning a family, pregnant or when they have young children. This can be anything from getting advice on medication use during pregnancy and breastfeeding to getting practical help with young children.

This stakeholder event will bring together women with chronic pain and their partners/other family members, health professionals and researchers who are interested in improving support for women with chronic pain on their journey to parenthood. On the day, we'll be presenting some of the findings of our research so far, and gathering ideas about what the priorities should be for research in this area.

We'll be providing lunch and refreshments and we can cover reasonable travel expenses.

If would like to take part or would like any more information, please call

We look forward to hearing from you!
