Multidisciplinary pain management programs incorporating a cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) approach have been reported to be helpful for elderly people with chronic pain. However, it is unclear whether the same program for elderly people with chronic pain would translate to different cultures. This study investigated whether a multidisciplinary program based on that of Nicholas et al. (Pain 154(6):824-835, 2013) in Australia would be effective for elderly people with chronic pain in Japan.
