Sex differences between Veterans participating in interdisciplinary chronic pain rehabilitation

Jennifer L. Murphy, PhD, et al.

The purpose of this research study was to see whether differences existed between male and female Veterans who took part in a residential treatment program for chronic pain. We looked at differences in how they changed during and after the program. The results indicate that some differences existed in the men and women who participated in the treatment and in how they benefitted. Since the number of women using the Department of Veterans Affairs for their healthcare is rising, this research helps to understand who may choose to participate in programs for chronic pain and how to adjust their pain treatment.
