Pain Manag

The management of chronic pain in sickle cell disease: an interview with Nadine Matthie.


Nadine Matthie, PhD, RN, CNL is an Assistant Professor in the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, USA. As a nurse scientist, she has conducted behavioral research to investigate pain and self-management in adults living with sickle cell disease, and address chronic, non vaso-occlusive pain in this population. Dr Matthie is developing non pharmacological, patient-centered, self-management strategies that incorporate virtual reality and biopsychosocial approaches to help manage chronic pain and reduce the burden of sickle cell; thereby, facilitating new, personalized approaches to management of chronic pain conditions in the home setting. Her research has been published in several national and international peer-reviewed sources for various disciplines, including nursing, medicine, music therapy and psychology.
