Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Through an online survey of open-ended questions, this qualitative study explored coping strategies used by people with chronic pain who are gainfully employed. Participants were recruited via social media. Qualitative data was analyzed using grounded theory until saturation was reached. Multiple researchers and data collection from multiple sources ensured triangulation, rigor, and trustworthiness of data. This study informs OTs of coping strategies to help their pain patients remain employed.
