May Webinar- A Technology-Assisted Chronic Pain Self-Management Intervention for Older Adults in a Low-income, Urban Setting

Title: A Technology-Assisted Chronic Pain Self-Management Intervention for Older Adults in a Low-income, Urban Setting

Presenter: Mary Janevic, PhD, MPH, University of Michigan

African American older adults living in resource-challenged settings are at high risk for pain-related disability, and have limited opportunities to learn chronic pain self-management skills that may help improve function.  Dr. Janevic will describe the development of a “high tech/high touch” pain self-management intervention that integrates physical activity monitoring and web-based instruction with support from a community health worker, to be tested in a pilot study in Detroit.
