- Brief summaryPediatric chronic pain is highly prevalent in the general population and causes considerable suffering. It often becomes a recurrent long-lasting, if not life-long, problem requiring costly health care over time. Psychological treatments, in particular cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and relaxation, have proven to be highly effective in reducing the intensity and frequency of chronic headache, recurrent abdominal pain, and musculoskeletal pain in children and adolescents. Despite demonstrated effectiveness, the delivery of standard psychological treatments is limited by the lack of well-trained therapists, high costs, low accessibility, long waiting lists, long travel distances, interference with school and work, and patientsí reluctance to enter psychological treatment. As a result, adolescents with chronic pain are an undertreated group. A possible solution to this problem of undertreatment might be the use of modern information and communication technology (ICT) that appeals to youth. Therefore, the aim of the current study is to develop an Internet-based treatment based on the principles of CBT for adolescents with chronic pain and to test its effectiveness.
