This project is funded by HelseDAM and the Norwegian PhysioFund. The project will start in October -23. In this project, we will conduct the initial stages of a full-scale RCT on the effectiveness of a personalized intervention for adolescents with persistent pain interfering with daily life. We will co-create the intervention for persistent pain in adolescents, and test feasibility in a pilot RCT. Our long-term goal for this project is to conduct a full-scale RCT. Our specific research objectives are 1) To co-create a protocol for a personalized intervention to adolescents with persistent pain with adolescents and relevant stakeholders during different workshops. 2) To test the feasibility of the intervention, and 3) to pilot test the intervention plus usual care compared to usual care alone on persistent pain interfering with daily life in adolescents living with persistent pain.
