Beyond the Pain (BTP)
BTP was developed by CITRA’s affiliate, the Translational Research Institute for Pain in Later Life (TRIPLL), which is a Edward R. Roybal Center funded by the National Institute on Aging. BTP is an educational and group-based pain management program for older adults with chronic pain. Over the course of several training sessions, participants learn self-help techniques and they form a community of support. BTP should be run by senior services organizations and peer leaders familiar with chronic pain management.
