Statement of Compliance
The app’s educational approach is consistent with the CDC’s recommendations for chronic disease self-management education programs.
To provide general patient education about the biopsychosocial impact of chronic pain, we adapted content based on internationally recognized resources:
- (1) “Essential Topics” for patient education (Table 4-1) outlined by the Institute of Medicine (US) Committee on Advancing Pain Research, Care, and Education
- (2) Patient self-management education recommendations made by the International Association for the Study of Pain.
- (3) Recommendations for chronic pain self-management education are emphasized by the Institute of Medicine (US) Committee on Advancing Pain Research, Care, and Education.
Self-management includes cognitive and behavioral coping strategies, managing emotions related to chronic pain, enhancing lifestyle choices (stress management, exercise, sleep hygiene, etc), and use of health care resources to manage decisions for medication use with one’s health care provider. Education that focuses on managing the consequences of chronic pain can provide learners with knowledge needed to weigh risks and benefits of their health care options.
