Chronic pain is highly prevalent and a leading cause of disability. Long wait times for interprofessional care provide an opportunity to introduce web-based interventions that improve psychosocial function and patients' readiness and ability to manage their condition. Here we describe the process of partnering with people with lived experience (PWLE) to develop an online self-management program enhanced by motivational interviewing. We also report the multiphase usability testing of the program.
