The development of the Therapeutic Group Context Questionnaire: Reliability and validity measures based on telehealth Group-based Pain Management Programs.


In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed the National Health Interview Survey data and found that the occurrence of chronic pain and high-impact chronic pain in the USA was 20.4% and 8%, respectively. Group-based Pain Management Programs have been viewed as significant treatments aiding patients with self-management of chronic pain. The onset of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) at the beginning of 2020, widely eliminated the in-person Group-based Pain Management Programs. The exploration of therapeutic contextual factors such as the therapeutic alliance and group dynamics in telehealth Group-based Pain Management Programs appears warranted for which reason the Therapeutic Group Context Questionnaire was developed.
