Will this Treatment Help my Child? How Parent/Caregiver Treatment Expectations Relate to Intensive Pain Rehabilitation Outcomes for Youth with Chronic Pain.


An extensive body of research has highlighted the impact that parent/caregiver factors have on functioning and treatment outcomes among youth with chronic pain. However, parent/caregiver expectations in pain treatment have been largely understudied, despite strong evidence that treatment expectations are associated with treatment engagement and overall outcomes in non-pain populations. Accordingly, the primary aim of this investigation was to preliminarily examine the manifestation and measurement of parent/caregiver treatment expectations in an intensive interdisciplinary pediatric pain treatment (IIPT) setting.
