No Intervention: Usual care
Patients receive outcome tracking tool, PainTracker, but no additional web-based support for self-management
Experimental: PainTracker Self-Manager
Patients are invited to complete the web-based PainTracker Self-Manager and interact with a nurse care manager who supports chronic pain self-management
Behavioral: PainTracker Self-Manager
Interactive web-based educational and assessment program supported by a nurse care manager
- Chronic Pain Self-efficacy [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ]Pain self-efficacy questionnaire (PSEQ); scores range from 0 to 60, with higher scores meaning greater self-efficacy (i.e., better outcome)
- Chronic Pain Acceptance [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ]Chronic Pain Acceptance Questionnaire with 2 subscales: Activity Engagement and Pain Willingness. Scores on the "activity engagement" subscale range from 0 to 66; scores on the "pain willingness" subscale range from 0 to 54; higher scores denote greater chronic pain acceptance.
- Patient-physician Interactions [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ]Perceived efficacy in patient-physician interactions (PEPPI). Sum scores range from 5 to 25 with higher scores denoting greater perceived efficacy in patient-physician interactions.
- Patient Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ]Patient satisfaction with care process. Note that we elected to evaluate patient satisfaction with their pain treatment in general, as opposed to the PTSM process specifically, in order to compare satisfaction between the study groups. Patient satisfaction was rated on an 11-point rating scale from 0 "extremely dissatisfied" to 10 "extremely satisfied"; higher scores denote higher satisfaction with pain treatment.
- Provider Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Provider satisfaction with care process and PTSM
- Pain Severity, Enjoyment of Life Interference, General Activity Interference (PEG) [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ]Pain and pain interference were evaluated using the 3-item PEG scale. The pain intensity item was rated on an 11-point numeric rating scale, from 0 "no pain" to 10 "pain as bad as you can imagine." Interference (with enjoyment of life and general activity) were rated from 0 "does not interfere" to 10 "completely interferes." The PEG total (mean) score ranges from 0 to 10, where higher scores denote greater pain intensity and interference.
