Gabrielle's PhD, completed in 2016, focused on suicidal behaviours amongst people living with chronic non-cancer pain and has been crucial in identifying chronic non-cancer pain as a suicide risk-factor. Gabrielle's research interests include pharmaceutical opioids, opioid dependence and suicidal behaviours amongst people living with chronic non-cancer pain. She currently coordinates a large prospective study examining the benefits and outcomes of prescription opioids for chronic pain, the Pain and Opioids IN Treatment (POINT) study.
