Putting Behavioral Treatments for Pain Online: Evidence and Lessons

Monday, March 21, 2016

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm GMT

Presenter: Christopher Eccleston, PhD. Professor of Medical Psychology and Director, Centre for Pain Research, The University of Bath

Overview: The population and personal burden of chronic pain is now well documented. There is good evidence that behavioral medicine interventions are effective in reaching the core goals of self-management: distress reduction, activity engagement, and a reduction in pain report. However, access to face-to-face therapy is poor, meaning that most of the population who could benefit have no opportunity to benefit. E-health interventions are often presented as a solution. But do they work?  This seminar reviews the evidence for psychological interventions and looks critically at those that have been tried on line. A summary of lessons learned and the features of potentially successful e-health innovations will be developed in the seminar.
