Patienters upplevelse av multimodal smärtrehabiliteringsprogram : En intervjustudie
Background: Chronic pain is a condition that approximately 18% of the Swedish population suffers from. This condition affects many aspects of a person´s life and causes psychological, physiological and social suffering. Multimodal treatment is considered the most effective treatment for patients with chronic pain. Patient participation and motivation are very important to treatment. Aim: The aim of this study was to explore patients´ experience of a multimodal chronic pain treatment program regarding their experience of patient participation and interaction with the rehabilitation team. Method: An exploratory qualitative interview study with inductive approach. The data was collected through interviews with nine former outpatients at a pain clinic who underwent the multimodal rehabilitation program for patients with chronic pain. Data was analysed by using manifest content analysis. Results: The participants experienced that they had received a very good treatment from the team as a whole. They also had experienced participation during the rehabilitation program. The experience was built on some requirements being fulfilled, which directly or indirectly contributed to the feeling and experience of receiving help. Human, professional, external and inner conditions contributed to a positive experience regarding patient participation in the program and the good treatment and interaction with the rehabilitation team as a whole. Conclusions: There seem to be a connection between the participants´ experience of good treatment and the help they experience they have received. Apparently, for patients, there is no clear border between rehabilitation and feeling of receiving a good treatment. Participation in the program seems to be based on receiving a good treatment.
