Chronic Pain Program

The Department of Pain Medicine and the Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression (CRUfAD), both based at St. Vincent’s Hospital, have developed an effective online program to help people with chronic pain. We want to test whether additional telephone support will make it better. We are currently recruiting patients to participate in a Randomised Controlled Trial of the Reboot Online Program.

The study involves completing 8 lessons over 16 weeks.

Successful applicants will be randomly allocated to a group commencing the program as usual or a group who will be offered the online treatment with additional fortnightly telephone support. If you have experienced persistent pain for three months or more, have a computer with internet access and a printer, and are 18 years or over, this may be the program for you.
