Abstract [en]

Long lasting pain is a growing health problem with a complex and problematic symptomatology. Precise and recognizable information is a necessary foundation for management of pain. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of a pain information and coping programme on a CD disc on self-efficacy and coping among patients with long-lasting pain. Participants from a pain clinic who met the criteria for the study (n=22) were randomized to an intervention or control group. The intervention lasted for one month with self assessment by questionnaires at the start of, after intervention and at the end of the study. The intervention consisted of information based on patients experiences and the development, causes and consequences of wide spread pain. Results showed statistically significant improvement in their self-efficacy in relation to pain. The inquiry regarding recognition to the intervention group showed high rates. No major significant changes could be seen regarding coping strategies except catastrophizing. Findings indicates that information about causes to wide spread pain developed over time lays a good foundation for management of pain by increasing self-efficacy and despite pain be able to perform daily activities.
