Individual understanding of and expectations for chronic pain treatment can influence treatment adherence and thus success, but little is known about these critical factors in parents and children presenting with pain-predominant functional gastrointestinal disorders (p-FGIDs). The aim of this study was to identify parent and patient understanding of p-FGIDs, expectations for treatment, and interventions utilized prior to presenting to a multidisciplinary clinic.
