Chronic pain affects 1 in 5 Australians in their lifetime, and costs billions of dollars annually in lost productivity and care. While providing adequate pain management remains difficult, with long waiting lists for specialist pain units, CBT-based pain management can improve pain, disability, and quality of life. Low intensity CBT (LiCBT) is easier to access as it is administered via phone, and can reduce mental illness, but has not been trialled for chronic pain. Thus, we conducted a pilot study aiming to assess the feasibility of embedding LiCBT within a chronic pain tertiary outpatients unit.
