Podcast 5 - Vulvodynia: a podcast lecture by David Nunns

An online presentation with audio about vulvodynia by Dr David Nunns. Please note that some slides show medical photography and images.

Although the slides in this presentation do advance automatically, some have a lengthy delay after the soundtrack for the slide has finished. We would suggest that when this happens, you use the Fast Forward button to advance the slides manually, which of course you can also do just to quickly click through the presentation.

Smartphone and tablet users

Some smartphone or tablet users may have problems viewing the presentation. If this is the case for you, please accept our apologies: we are working on a more smartphone-friendly version of the presentation and will post it here as soon as possible. In the meantime, you may find it helpful to download the soundtrack from the presentation, as it contains most of the useful information in the presentation. It's included below as an MP3. This MP3 is shorter than the full slide presentation because the slide delays have been cut, but otherwise the soundtrack is exactly the same as the full presentation.

NB - As Part I of this presentation involved some brief practical cognitive exercises for the audience, and Part II included a group exercise in self-hypnosis, both of the MP3 files have a number of moments of silence. These are usually deliberate pauses by the speaker to allow the audience to reflect or engage in other cognitive exercises, and do not indicate problems with the MP3 recording. Feel free to pause with the speaker, engage in the exercises, or fast forward as best suits you.
