Joshua W. Pate, PhD, is a Senior Lecturer in Physiotherapy. His research focus is on a child’s concept of pain; Josh is fascinated by how re-conceptualizing pain according to contemporary science may change the way pain is treated. As part of his PhD he developed the Concept of Pain Inventory (COPI) and he is now working on developing and testing educational resources. Josh worked with TED-Ed to make two online animations with millions of views, he co-founded a pain science interview platform (‘One Thing’), and he authored the Zoe and Zak’s Pain Hacks series of children’s books each targeting a learning outcome for pain science education. Josh is on the Scientific Program Committee for the Australian Pain Society and he has been an invited speaker at several international scientific conferences. He dreams of generational conceptual and behaviour change regarding the complexity of pain.
