Critically Appraised Topic
Gail Bass/Devon Olson Lambert
The purpose of this critically appraised topic (CAT) paper is to explore the effectiveness of pain reduction through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in assisting men and women who have chronic musculoskeletal pain with instrumental activities of daily living. There is a gap in the literature regarding the effect of cognitive behavioral therapy when managing and perceiving chronic musculoskeletal pain. There is also a gap in long-term research in the performance and satisfaction of instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) when living with chronic pain. Aegler and Satink (2009), Cheng et al. (2017) and Ehde et al. (2014) discussed the impact of chronic pain on occupational performance but do not follow up on specific IADLs and levels of pain post-study or treatment.
