Abstract

Chronic pain often interferes with daily living. This study aimed to explore day-to-day patterns of functioning and experiences of older adults living with chronic pain. Thirteen older adults (65+ years) living with chronic pain (pain lasting >3 months) took part in the study. Four data collection techniques were used to gather information on various aspects of daily living. Participants were asked to wear a sensecam, a lifeshirt, as well as complete a daily diary for seven days. Participants also took part in a semistructured interview. Themes were developed, based on the images, to explain the effect of chronic pain on the participants' functioning. The sensecam allowed novel data to be gathered increasing knowledge of the daily functioning of older adults living with chronic pain.
