This is the patient version of the literacy-Adapted Pain Education Workbook, used in the Learning About My Pain (LAMP) trial. The pain education workbook provides relevant information about chronic pain and pain self-management, without providing skills training. In that sense, pain education is simpler to administer than a cognitive-behavioral treatment program. Although this pain education program has been found to be slightly less effective than cognitive-behavioral treatment, it was found to be more effective than using medical treatment by itself.


This is the patient version of the literacy-Adapted Pain Education Workbook, used in the Learning About My Pain (LAMP) trial. The LAMP trial was part of a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute Comparative Research Award, and the workbooks were used in the trial.
