Veni grant for Jana Declercq

03 December 2020

Jana Decelrcq of the Discourse and Communication group received NWO funding for the Veni project: Talking about chronic pain — the discursive construction of the body in pain clinic consultations

Our society conventionally views mind and body as separate entities. However, research shows that diseases – chronic ones in particular – consist of an interplay between body, mind and sociocultural aspects. This project researches the tension between these two perspectives that arises in communication between healthcare professionals and chronic pain patients in pain clinics.
