Take Charge of Your Pain (TCYP)
TCYP was developed by CITRA’s affiliate, the Translational Research Institute for Pain in Later Life, in collaboration with the Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY). TCYP is a cognitive-behavioral pain self-management program for older adults receiving home health care, usually after an illness, injury, or surgery. The program should be run by care providers (e.g., occupational or physical therapists, exercise physiologists, nurses, etc.) with the goal of teaching older patients skills that will help them address acute or chronic pain and assume more active lifestyles. TCYP can be customized for individual patients and can be run in either one or multiple visits.
