Meaningful Learnings of Pain Rehabilitation
- Research project
Pain rehabilitation is often developed top-down by clinicians and researchers, relying largely on conceptual models that lack empirical foundation.
This approach may not accurately identify a person’s core problems or views on successful treatment outcomes. This project aims to understand the meaningful learnings of rehabilitation for participants who have substantially improved in living with persistent pain.
Although the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) defines pain as a complex health condition and acknowledges its personal nature, many healthcare professionals face challenges in integrating personal aspects into the treatment of individuals with persistent pain. Pain rehabilitation is often developed top-down by clinicians and researchers, primarily based on conceptual models with a lack of empirical foundation. Integrating the lived experience of pain is often a blind spot in pain rehabilitation. Including participants’ engagement in pain research and education is therefore essential, as they are best positioned to provide context for pain rehabilitation based on their experiences. While there are models describing processes for recovery from persistent pain, they do not provide insight into the meaningful learnings of rehabilitation participants who have substantially improved from persistent pain. Understanding these learnings is crucial for enhancing the pain curricula for healthcare professionals and for improving outcomes in pain rehabilitation. This study aims to explore the meaningful learnings of rehabilitation for participants who have substantially improved in living with persistent pain.
