Title: PATH-Pain: A Behavioral Intervention For Older Adults With Negative Emotions And Chronic Pain In Primary Care

Presenter: Dimitris Kiosses, PhD, Weill Cornell Medicine

Dr. Kiosses will discuss PATH-Pain, a new behavioral intervention for older adults with chronic pain and negative emotions in primary care. PATH-Pain is a manualized 8-week program for primary care that consists of 8 weekly individual sessions and 1 group educational session. All sessions are designed for patients and a willing and available study partner (e.g., family member, caregiver, friend). The goals of PATH-Pain are to reduce negative emotions associated with pain and pain-related disability, increase positive emotions and increase engagement in pleasurable activities; and shift attention during experiences of pain to help reduce pain intensity.
