Based on the Representational Approach to patient education described in the first segment of this symposium, RIDPAIN was developed, pilot tested and revised. Then a randomized trial was conducted to compare RIDPAIN to a standard educational intervention (SEI) for adults (N=176) with cancer pain. Hypotheses were that RIDPAIN would be more effective than SEI in decreasing patients' misconceptions (barriers) about reporting pain and using analgesics with a resultant decrease in pain severity and improved quality of life (QOL). Outcome variables (pain severity and QOL) and mediating variables (barriers) were assessed at baseline, and one and two months post intervention. Analyses revealed that the two groups did not differ on demographic or disease variables at baseline. There was a main effect for treatment group on change in barriers scores from Time 1 to Time 2, with those in RIDPAIN showing a greater decrease relative to those in SEI [t(136)=2.46, p=.01]. Similarly, there was a main effect for treatment group on Time 1 to Time 3 change in pain severity, with those in RIDPAIN improving compared to those in SEI [t(136)=2.35, p=.02]. The changes in barriers, however, did not mediate the effect of RIDPAIN on changes in pain severity. QOL outcome variables such as pain interference with life activities and overall QOL were not effected differentially by RIDPAIN versus SEI. Implications for strengthening this promising intervention will be discussed, with attention to the need to create patient-specific goals and plans and on the need to test whether including significant others in the intervention sessions will more effectively reduce barriers and improve pain management.
