Evidence for the effectiveness of intensive interdisciplinary pain treatment (IIPT) for pediatric chronic pain is growing; however, little research has considered factors that contribute to differences in patients' treatment response. The present study utilized multilevel modeling (MLM) to examine trajectory of change over time in functional disability from clinic assessment to 6-month follow-up in pediatric patients participating in IIPT, considering spatial distribution of pain, coping efficacy, and pain intensity.
