Chronic pain: treatment, rehabilitation, and quality of life

The current issue of the Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development (JRRD), a publication of Rehabilitation Research and Development, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), includes a special section that focuses on the treatment, rehabilitation, and quality of life for individuals who experience chronic pain. Also in this issue are articles that report on structuring exercise for people with motion-provoked dizziness, improving arm movement with functional electrical stimulation, and predicting wound healing in individuals with spinal cord injury.

Also published with Volume 40 Issue 5 of JRRD is a supplement addressing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The only major chronic disease with increasing mortality, COPD places a significant strain on the healthcare system. This special edition highlights three critical outcomes of pulmonary rehabilitation: smoking cessation, symptom relief, and improved functional performance. Full-text manuscripts for both issues of JRRD are available, free of charge, on-line at www.vard.org.

Development and validation of a pain management survey, pg # 381
Paper presents the development and validation of a comprehensive and efficient self-report measure of pain treatment outcomes. 957 veterans receiving inpatient and outpatient pain treatment at six VA medical centers completed the Pain Outcomes Questionnaire-VA (POQ-VA) intake items during their inpatient admission or initial outpatient appointment. Results of this project support the reliability, validity, and clinical use of the POQ-VA for evaluating the effectiveness of pain treatment for veterans experiencing chronic noncancer pain and provide a more appropriate means of evaluating the efficacy of pain interventions.
